Keith Olbermann has slowly taken Senator John McCain’s speech at the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) and deconstructed it. He pulled McCain’s 2003 Iraq victory speech in which McCain declared that the job was done. McCain has pointed the finger at Senator Barack Obama for shifting positions on Iraq but really, McCain has no rival when it comes to sitting on both sides of the fence at the same.
This is a very good special comment by Keith Olbermann.
It should be mentioned that I cringe when I hear that someone is speaking to the VFW. It was at the VFW that Dick Cheney laid down the saber. Remember:
“Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. There is no doubt he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us. And there is no doubt that his aggressive regional ambitions will lead him into future confrontations with his neighbors — confrontations that will involve both the weapons he has today, and the ones he will continue to develop with his oil wealth.” Vice President Dick Cheney at the Veterans of Foreign Wars, August 26, 2002.
