McCain pleased with Obama’s Afghanistan planMarch 30th, 2009 - 6:07 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Mar.30 (ANI): Former Republican presidential candidate and Arizona Senator John McCain has welcomed President Barack Obama’s strategy for Pakistan and Afghanistan.
“I think the outlines of this proposal are good. The best way to get out of Afghanistan fast is people to think we’re staying,” Politico quoted McCain, as saying.
“The main thing I would have done in that speech, I’m sorry to say, is to tell the American people that it’s going to be long and hard and tough. We’ve got to prepare the American people for a significant expenditure of American blood and treasure,” he added. (ANI)
