The Foolhardy Express

LA Times points out that John McCain's support of the surge belies other problems he has on Iraq, including:
Before the war, McCain predicted a quick and easy victory, not a vicious insurgency. He issued dire warnings about Saddam Hussein's supposed weapons of mass destruction but didn't read the full 2002 National Intelligence Estimate that showed gaps in the intelligence.
So, he was among the chocolates-and-flowers-for-the-liberators crowd that lacked intelligent foresight in the run-up to war. Four years of McCain is just four more of Bush.
