United States presidential election, 2008: John McCain on Iraq, bin Laden


Senator John McCain predicted the next eight months will determine whether the United States will win in Iraq.

“If things go south again and we have significant setbacks, then I think the American people are probably going to demand that we get out, no matter how I feel and no matter how I am convinced about what the consequences of failure are,” he told the Nashua Telegraph.

McCain also called a new message from Osama bin Laden proof that the U.S. strategy is working in Iraq. “Bin Laden’s return to the airwaves to beg for unity in al Qaeda’s terror campaign in Iraq is evidence of our success in Iraq, where we have effectively driven al Qaeda from Anbar province, and have them on the run elsewhere,” he said in a statement released yesterday.
