Debunking The Republican Fantasy World – ‘McCain Repeatedly Declared U.S. Prevailed in Afghanistan 10 Years Ago’
‘On Tuesday, Senator McCain along with his Mini-Me’s Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) reacted with outrage to President Obama’s proposal for a phased drawdown from Afghanistan’.
John McCain :
“The President’s decision to set an arbitrary date for the full withdrawal of U.S. troops in Afghanistan is a monumental mistake and a triumph of politics over strategy. This is a short-sighted decision that will make it harder to end the war in Afghanistan responsibly.”
