Be Careful What You Wish For
This is just too funny to watch. St. John is having to find a way to protect his position:
Since that time, McCain has been slowly back-pedaling from the escalation plan, offering numerous reasons for why the strategy will not succeed. He has argued the Pentagon was “dragging its feet” in implementing the strategy. Now, he is arguing that the escalation is too small.
He advocated escalation thinking that no one in their right mind would do it. But then he didn't factor in Preznit's Bush's. Anyway, after the loss in Iraq, he could claim the hawk mantle with the "if only they'd done what I said" strategy. This miscalculation just may have done him in.
