So in the interview that just ran on CNN, John McCain said that al Maliki’s 16 month timetable for withdrawal from Iraq is a “pretty good timetable.” He only adds that “they have to be based on conditions on the ground.”

In other words, Barack Obama’s 16 month timetable is a catastrophe but al Maliki’s is “pretty good”. And the difference is that al Maliki’s is based on conditions on the ground and Obama’s isn’t — even though they’re both 16 months.
