McCain’s Iran/al Qaeda Gaffes, Petraeus’ Correction

By  | 

I don’t want to get too far down the rabbit hole on McCain’s slip ups, but I do think that if Hillary or Obama said similar things, well, there’d be no end to that video loop.

If you’re not aware of the gaffes, McCain mentioned a couple times that Iran was training al Qaeda operatives and then sending them back into Iraq. This isn’t supported by what we know, so I’ll let General David Petraeus correct McCain’s assertions.

Most alarming part of that clip? The fact that the CNN reporters picked up McCain’s gaffe as fact even after McCain corrected himself.
