Countdown – Special Comment

Keith Olbermann has slowly taken John McCain’s speech at the VFW (veterans of foreign wars) and deconstructed it. He has pulled McCain’s Iraq victory speech in 2003. This is the speech in which John McCain declared victory in Iraq and Afghanistan – 5 years ago. We were done according to John McCain.

McCain has called out Barack Obama on shifting positions on Iraq but no one has been on both sides of the fence at the same time as well as Senator McCain. McCain praised Donald Rumsfeld at the same time he was criticizing him. John McCain has stated that the surge has worked but he isn’t ready to bring the troops home. When is that time exactly? Well, McCain will never state that time because it would sound like a time table.

This is a very good special comment by Keith Olbermann.

It should be mentioned that I cringe when I hear that someone is speaking to the VFW. I have a flashback. It was at the VFW that Dick Cheney laid down the saber back in 2002. Remember –

“Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. There is no doubt he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us. And there is no doubt that his aggressive regional ambitions will lead him into future confrontations with his neighbors — confrontations that will involve both the weapons he has today, and the ones he will continue to develop with his oil wealth.” Vice President Dick Cheney at the Veterans of Foreign Wars, August 26, 2002.
