Obama and McCain absolutely do not agree on Iraq

The left has decided to use their usual tactic of just lying about what McCain actually believes about Iraq. They are trying to form a meme that McCain agreed to a 16 month timeline, which Barry O pulled right out of his ass. He did not. He said if conditions improve enough we may be able to do what we would always have done, i.e. pull troops as conditions warrant. Barry O's plan was, is and will likely always be his arbitrary BS timeline based on his need to placate his base. Don't allow the press to game this and conflate Obama's naive political position with McCain's principled, informed stance.

The military experts who expounded on this ridiculous concept are these two maroons.
