More Re: McCain & Co.


James Carafano, Sr. Fellow for Defense & Homeland Security at the Heritage Foundation, was on my radio show on Friday. He explained that we don’t have all these troops McCain and others keep talking about, that sending them to Iraq — if we had them — will increase casualty figures and further complicate the provision of supplies (such as armored vehicles, etc.), and that the administration’s goal of establishing a government and helping with training of Iraqi forces is the only way to accomplish our objectives in Iraq. Deploying and basing more and more forces in Iraq won’t do it.
