McCain's pattern of factual mistakes on Iraq.

We have another major McCain "misspeaking" about Iraq. First there was that embarrassing slip where he said (several times at several venues) that Iran was arming and training Al Qaeda. Then there was the recent "quiet in Mosul."

Then, yesterday, we have the fairly baldfaced misstatement about troop levels.

(Just off the top of my head, we should probably should add his April mistake over Petraes' purview, his April misstatements about the Basra uprising, and I'm sure there are more.)

These are facts he's getting wrong on his supposed area of expertise.

Of course he thinks we're going to win. He has no idea what's going on.
