That timeframe falls within the 16-month withdrawal plan proposed by Obama, who arrived in Iraq earlier in the day as part of a congressional fact-finding team.
Once again this shows that McCain does not have the right judgment and vision for the future of Iraq and the war on terror.
TPJ: Meanwhile as reporters speak of the danger of Obama making a gaffe during his overseas trip, McCain made another disturbing geography gaffe on the American ABC News program, "Good Morning America.
"Asked by Diane Sawyer whether the "the situation in Afghanistan in precarious and urgent," McCain responded: "I think it's serious. . . . It's a serious situation, but there's a lot of things we need to do. We have a lot of work to do and I'm afraid it's a very hard struggle, particularly given the situation on the Iraq/Pakistan border."
McCain once again shows terrible judgment and understanding of a region that is the hot spot of foreign affairs right now. Hey John, you're not even close. It goes (from left to right) Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and then Pakistan. He probably believes the no longer existent Czechoslovakia (which McCain has referred to more than once over the years and recent months) is in there somewhere too. What a dolt.
Imagine a President McCain ordering a major bombing offensive in Afghanistan but said Iraq instead!! We can't take a risk on a guy like McCain who doesn't seem to even know the basics of current world geography. It's scary when an average American with a minor degree in world geography as I have, having more understanding of that subject than one of the two current presidential candidates!! This is the exact kind of ignorance that Bush showed us and we can't afford another Bush.
Meanwhile Obama was greeted with a standing ovation in Kuwait before sinking a 3 point basketball shot:
