Martin Dempsey, testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Carter, under questioning from Sen. John McCain this week, acknowledged his concern when McCain asked if it alarms him that Iran “has basically taken over the fight.” (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, File)
