McCain

Man skvetter i stolen og tror knapt sine ører når man hører John McCain i dagens Senats-utspørring. Mannen har forberedt seg i ukevis på å utnytte sin seniorposisjon under utspørringen av en vennligsinnet general Petraeus. Og så klarer den gamle kroken McCain IGJEN å dokumentere at han ikke skjønner hva som skjer i Irak.

Bare noen uker etter at han gjentatte ganger røpet at han trodde al-Qaida ble trent i shia-bastionen Iran, tramper han igjen i klaveret. Han vil gjerne ha general Petraeus til å bekrefte at al-Qaida ikke bare er en liten obskur sekt blant shiane, men en betydelig kraft!

Burde ikke Verdens Helseorganisasjon, Geriatrisk Avdeling, gripe inn og forhindre at vi får denne mannen som «leder av den frie verden»?

 

Det føyer seg inn i en lang rekke McCain-vrøvl om Irak:

March 17, 2008: McCain said on the Hugh Hewitt radio show "As you know, there are al-Qaeda operatives that are taken back into Iran, given training as leaders, and they're moving back into Iraq."

March 18, 2008: In Jordan after a trip to Iraq, McCain said a press conference that "'We continue to be concerned about Iranian [operatives] taking al-Qaeda into Iran, training them and sending them back,' he said in comments after meeting with Jordan's King Abdullah II on Tuesday afternoon. Pressed to elaborate, McCain said it is 'common knowledge and has been reported in the media that al-Qaeda is going back into Iran and receiving training and are coming back into Iraq from Iran; that's well known. And it's unfortunate.' A few moments later, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.), standing just behind McCain, stepped forward and whispered in his ear. McCain then said, 'I'm sorry, the Iranians are training extremists, not al-Qaeda.'" [Washington Post, 3/19/08]

March 19, 2008: The next day however, in a press release on the fifth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, McCain said "Al Qaeda and Shia extremists - with support from external powers such as Iran - are on the run but not defeated." [McCain Presidential Campaign Press Release via Targeted News Service, 3/19/08]

November 2007: McCain Said that Al Qaeda Is Getting "Supplies and Equipment" From Iran. "Al Qaeda is not defeated," McCain told George Stephanopoulos on ABC's This Week. "They're on the run, but they are not defeated, and they continue to get supplies and equipment through Iran, and they continue to get suicide bombers through Syria." [ABC, This Week with George Stephanopoulos, 11/25/07]
