John McCain Caught Lying to the Meida Again

From

McCain talks with reporters aboard his campaign bus.

(CNN) — After talking with aides before his speech targeting Barack Obama’s changing positions and rhetoric on Iraq, John McCain decided to ad lib a line slamming the Illinois senator as a flip-flopper.

The only problem is the evidence he gave wasn’t exactly right.

First McCain quoted Obama in January 2007, saying that there can’t be a military solution to a civil war, and that he knows no military expert who thinks the surge can make a difference.

Then McCain said, “incredibly today, he goes on to say today, quote ‘I had no doubt we would see a reduction in violence with the surge’ — my friends, flip-floppers all over the world are enraged”

The problem is that Obama did not in fact say today, “I had no doubt we would see a reduction in violence with the surge.”
