On second thought… scratch that.
Posted by Shawn Brimley

So what is it with the McCain team and strange foreign policy gaffes?

First we have McCain's "senior moment" last week when he repeatedly asserted that Iran is training Al Qaeda in Iraq, only to be publicly corrected by Senator Lieberman.

Then we have Senator Graham asserting on CBS' Face the Nation that we'll be able to get down to 100,000 troops in Iraq by the end of 2008, only to then retract the statement today by saying: "I think we will be at pre-surge levels, about 130,000 troops, at year's end."

So public errors on perhaps 2 of the top 5 foreign policy issues (Iran, Iraq) facing the country. You'd better believe if Clinton or Obama made similar mistakes they would be vigorously attacked from the Right.

Thanks for taking the time to post such a detailed and informative article. It has given me a lot of inspiration

The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with,never say a word,and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.
