McCain: We Won Iraq, Obama Lost It from the Daily Beast
"“We had it won,” McCain said. The U.S. “had the conflict won thanks to the surge… We had a stable government.” McCain also said he believed that “if we left the residual force behind, we would not be facing the crisis today.”"
OMG!!! Will these people ever stop!? Having gotten us into Iraq under false pretenses and kept our forces there for 10 years (to the sole benefit of our good friend, Iran), we now get an even riper slice of bologna: the US "had the conflict won" and we should have kept tens of thousands of US troops there to prop up our incompetent, tone-deaf puppet regime. And, tell us Mr. McCain, how long should US troops have stayed in Iraq? Answer: he doesn't care. It would be fine with him if they were still there 100 years from now [his answer from the 2008 campaign]. Can McCain and his stand-ins ever learn from actual experience?! It seems not.
