Iraqi Security Advisor: "Withdrawal of US Troops Would Be Catastrophe"
Iraq’s National Security Advisor Mouwafak al-Rubaie told FOX News that he agrees that a precipitous withdrawal of troops from Iraq would be a catastrophe for Iraq tipping it into violent chaos. “John McCain tough steadfastness and perseverance and stamina has helped in pulling back a lot of old friends back, to supporting Iraq and I think he’s a very interesting guy.
More than any other presidential hopeful, McCain has staked his reputation on America coming out of Iraq with its credibility intact. Today in remote Anbar Province the continuing improvement in security looks like he’s backed a winner.
