Good job by McCain answering Obama’s ludicrous assertion he made last night about al-Qaeda.
Here is what he is referring to, go listen to it.
You heard that right. We should go fight al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, stay away from Iraq, but go back in if al-Qaeda comes back (like they wouldn’t) and “threatens the homeland or our interests.” Meaning, unless AQ has plans, which I assume our intelligence would find out about (how is anyone’s guess seeing as how the Democrats put us back into a 1978 version of FISA) to attack the homeland, then just let them have Iraq.
At least he is being honest about it. Just give the damn country to al-Qaeda, allow them to have a nation state to operate from, and be done with it. That won’t come back to bite us in the ass will it?
Allah at Hot Air:
That’s a curious line to take for the left, which is normally comfortable intervening militarily where no American security interests are at stake (Haiti, Kosovo, soon perhaps Darfur), but then this is the guy who thinks zero troops in Iraq plus lots of troops in Afghanistan is somehow the magic combination to defeating AQ.
McCain summed it up in this just released statement:
Where is the audacity of hope when it comes to backing the success of our troops all the way to victory in Iraq? What we heard last night was the timidity of despair. Our allies deserve better, our soldiers deserve better, and so do the American people.
Excellent…..the timidity of despair.
