Is everybody missing this? That McCain is now trying to catch up to Obama on Afghanistan? In fact, he’s now adopting Obama’s position.
Obama has been saying for almost a year that more troops are needed in Afghanistan. McCain has said that wasn’t the case, that Iraq was the central battleground in the war on terror. Moreover, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs says that we need more troops in Afghanistan but we none are available unless we pull substantial numbers out of Iraq — which McCain is ruling out.
So let’s all say it out loud: McCain is now copying Obama’s position on Afghanistan.
And with troops that he doesn’t have since he’s against pulling any out of Iraq.
