The Wonk Room: “Significantly, all of the leaders in front of the commission — Mullen, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, and Working Group chairmen Defense Department General Counsel Jeh C. Johnson and Army Gen. Carter F. Ham — disagreed with McCain’s approach of polling the troops about the policy. ‘I can’t think of a single precedent in American history of doing a referendum of the american armed forces on a policy issue,’ Gates said, asking, ‘are you going to ask them if they want 15 month tours, are you going to ask them if they want to be part of the surge in Iraq?’ McCain didn’t name a single ‘great leader’ who favored a referendum.”
McCain, the Song Bird, which his captors nicked named him, because he sold out his fellow service men by telling information and using his father’s military rank (Admiral of the fleet) during the Vietnam war.
McCain, REEKS of homophobia, bigotry and sour grapes, because he thought he had the White House. This fool needs to be removed from The Armed Sevices Commitee and from Congress.
Hopefully there wil be a special place in HELL for John McCain.
