Geez. Fox News Says John McCain's Repeated Screwups About Iran are a *Senior Moment*

25 March 2008 at 7:58:50 AM

Leaving aside the issue of John McCain, who is a loose cannon hothead, and his age, (and laughing a bit to think that THIS IS HOW FOX NEWS SUPPORTS HIM????? heh) , that was NOT just a *senior moment* unless you want to believe that John McCain has had *senior moments* FOUR TIMES.

Just as McCain’s initial assertion about Iran training al Qaeda was false, his claim that he “corrected it immediately” is also false. In fact, McCain made the claim at least three times on two separate occasions. He corrected himself only after the third utterance when Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) whispered in his ear.

While NBC aired only a snippet of O’Donnell’s interview, in the full video, which is posted online, McCain also played the common conservative game of using “intentionally deceptive language” to blur “the differences between groups with different goals and ideologies in order to create the illusion of a united Islamofascist enemy”:

Al Qaeda is military. Al Qaeda is killing Americans as we speak. Islamic extremists are being trained in Iran and they are being sent back into Iran, I mean into Iraq.

Making a false claim and then making it again is the opposite of the correcting it immediately. It’s also the opposite of “straight talk.”

Even McCain's *Fact Sheet* leaves THIS out.

But as Washington Post Fact Checker Michael Dobbs points out today, the campaign cut out Odierno’s disclaimer that undercuts McCain. Here’s what the McCain campaign left out:

We don’t see any evidence, significant evidence, that shows that [the Iranian-controlled] groups that are funding and providing arms to Shi’a extremists are directly related to al Qaeda.

Myself, I think, since he's channeling Bush, that he's just..dumb
