    WASHINGTON — The embattled head of the GOP isn’t getting an endorsement from Sen. John McCain.

    McCain says party chairman Michael Steele’s recent comments about the Afghanistan war are “wildly inaccurate” and inexcusable.

    The Arizona Republican says Steele needs to assess whether he can still function in his job and must make “an appropriate decision” about his future.

    At a recent GOP fundraiser, Steele called the U.S. commitment of troops in Afghanistan a mistaken “war of Obama’s choosing.”

    The war began after the Sept. 11 attacks, when George W. Bush was president. McCain tells ABC’s “This Week” that it’s “America’s war and we can’t afford to fail.”

    Some Republicans want Steele to resign because of his remarks.
