“If John (McCain) wants to know where the bad guys live, come back with me to Afghanistan. We know where they reside. And it's not in Iraq.”
I just love it when our troops in Iraq aren't facing real bad guys. This of course ignores the fact that al-Qaeda believes that Iraq is the central front in the war. I realize that the Democratic fetish has turned from Iraq-as-Vietnam to Iraq-is-over-now-to-Afghanistan. But the situation is still fragile, and could be reversed rather quickly. It's a shame that in a rush to get past Iraq (which has become a loser position for them) the Dems have shifted to this mode.
To deny that Iraq is pacified is illogical; and to deny the fact that there are still Baathists, insurgents, and al-Qaeda there is even more so.
