McCain Slams Obama–Doesn't Know His Al-Qaeda From His Iraq
This may be news to Barack Obama…
But, Al-Qaeda is already in Iraq.
They even mapped the place.
This Al-Qaeda map was captured last year before the surge in Iraq:
“Above is a map which bears the flag (upper right corner) of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), al Qaeda’s front group, captured by U.S. troops near Samara last month. It shows what the ISI claims is al Qaeda contolled territory. This is what al Qaida claims, not what the Administration claims.”
John McCain slammed Barack Obama today on his ignorant statements on Iraq during the Democratic debate last night.
“I’m not embarrassed to tell you that I did not watch the Democrat debate last night,” McCain said, “but I am told that Senator Obama made the statement that if Al Qaeda came back to Iraq after he withdraws — after the American troops are withdrawn — then he would send military troops back, if Al Qaeda established a military base in Iraq. I have some news: Al Qaeda is in Iraq. Al Qaeda, it’s called Al Qaeda in Iraq, and my friends if we left they wouldn’t be establishing a base, they wouldn’t be establishing a base, they’d be taking a country. And I’m not going to allow that to happen my friends. I will not surrender. I will not surrender to Al Qaeda.
“It’s pretty remarkable when Al Qaeda is in Iraq, and want to withdraw from Iraq and then say you will go back to Iraq if they have a base there. That’s — when you examine that statement it’s pretty remarkable.”
There truly is a distinct difference in the parties this year.
** John McCain slams the Swiftboat Vets and then Barack Obama in a matter of hours.
He truly is the Maverick in the race.
