Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show,” Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) attacked her Republican colleagues, Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), for being wrong on the amount of time it would take U.S. forces to win the war in Iraq by saying that their miscalculation means they have “zero credibility” when it comes to matters of Middle East war.
Boxer said, “I can I say, they were so wrong on Iraq, and I know it personally, John McCain is my friend. We talk all the time. OK, he told me one day in the hall, when things weren’t going well Iraq, he said, ‘Barbara, don’t worry, this thing will be over in six or eight weeks.’ Lindsey Graham was so wrong. They got us involved in the worse foreign policy disaster.”
When asked by Schultz if the two senators have any credibility, the California Democrat said, “To me they have zero. And my message to the American people is don’t follow the people that led us into the worse foreign policy disaster ever. Work with the president. He has the moderate position. That’s what’s going to move us forward. Stand up to them. That’s what we should have done after 9/11. Instead we went into Iraq, it was a disaster.”
