Fairfax, Va. — Senator John McCain blasted Colin Powell this morning in an interview with National Review Online.
Powell “got us into Iraq,” McCain said.
“Colin Powell, interestingly enough, said that Obama got us out of Iraq,” McCain said, standing outside of an American Legion hall. “But it was Colin Powell, with his testimony before the U.N. Security Council, that got us into Iraq.”
Powell, who endorsed President Obama four years ago, endorsed the president again earlier this week.
“He retracted those comments this morning,” McCain said, flatly.
