Because he is a foreign policy master…

Looks like Mccain is pretty knowledgable about foreign policy:

Pressed to elaborate, McCain said it was “common knowledge and has been reported in the media that al-Qaeda is going back into Iran and receiving training and are coming back into Iraq from Iran, that’s well known. And it’s unfortunate.” A few moments later, Sen. Joseph Lieberman, standing just behind McCain, stepped forward and whispered in the presidential candidate’s ear. McCain then said: “I’m sorry, the Iranians are training extremists, not al-Qaeda.”

It is absurd that this man is even a candidate. How do we plan on being successful in a WAR if we dont even know who we are fighting?
