Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on "Your World" today that he's losing all respect for President Barack Obama as commander-in-chief. 

The 2016 Republican presidential candidate blasted Obama's "doctrine of strategic patience."

Graham said that Obama is more worried about keeping his campaign promises than he is about "protecting the homeland."

"I'm losing all respect for President Obama as commander-in-chief, he knows better," Graham stated. "You're not going to defeat ISIL in Syria without a ground component. It won't be the Kurds."

He asserted that Obama "is going to pass the problem of Iraq and Syria and ISIL on to the next president."

Graham told Neil Cavuto that he advocates leaving 10,000 American troops in Afghanistan.

"If we don't, we're going to have another Iraq," he said. "There is no way we are going to bring about stability in Iraq unless we increase the number of troops from about 3,500 to about 10,000."
