On May 1, 2003, unbeknownst to you, conflict in Iraq was over. Or so said the Man Who Would Be President, John McCain:
CAVUTO: … Senator, "after a conflict" means "after the conflict," and many argue the conflict isn’t over.
MCCAIN: Well, then why was there a banner that said ‘mission accomplished’ on the aircraft carrier? The conflict…the major conflict is over, the regime change has been accomplished.
Well, I guess we know why McCain doesn’t think Bush should be "blamed" for the "Mission Accomplished" banner. It was right!
