Maverick Iraq War policy

Sen. Joe Biden points out that the bold Maverick McCain's talk about winning in Iraq by 2013 is empty talk (McCain Has Zero Plan to Get Us Out of Mess President Bush Has Created Huffington Post 05/15/08):

John McCain revealed today that he has no plan - none - to get us out of the mess the president has created. Senator McCain said that it is important for presidential candidates to "define their objectives and what they plan to achieve not with vague language but with clarity." But especially when it comes to Iraq and Afghanistan, the picture he painted today of where he hopes to be by 2013 is totally divorced from reality and there is zero clarity about how he would get there. It's beyond being vague: John McCain is totally silent about how he would realize his rosy vision for 2013. ...

Exactly how will we have any chance of winning in Afghanistan and defeating al Qaeda if we keep 140,000 troops in Iraq for another three or four years? Senator McCain doesn't say because he can't. ...

Today's speech is further proof that when it comes to Iraq, there is no daylight between John McCain and George W. Bush. They are joined at the hip. When it comes to Iraq, there will be no change with a McCain administration and so there is a real and profound choice for Americans in November. (my emphasis)
That's our Maverick!

Defend the bad against the worse."
