John McCain Said, in 2000 Presidential Bid, that US Troops Were Killing Innocent Civilians

From Think Progress, which points out that that a recent McCain ad tries to trash Senator Obama for saying the almost exact same thing that McCain did in 2000.

In recent days, the McCain campaign has been taking these remarks out of context to criticize Obama. For example, during the recent vice presidential debate, Palin claimed, “Obama has said that all we’re doing in Afghanistan is ‘air raiding villages’ and ‘killing civilians.’” She called said his comment was “reckless” and “hurts our cause.” ......

But as the Washington Times reports today, McCain himself made virtually identical remarks about the U.S. military during his 2000 presidential bid:

MCCAIN: In the most obscene chapter in recent American history is the conduct of the Kosovo conflict when the president of the United States refused to prepare for ground operations, refused to have air power used effectively because he wanted them flying — he had them flying at 15,000 feet where they killed innocent civilians because they were dropping bombs from such — in high altitude.

So, let's see. Okay if You're a Republican and it's a Democratic war to say this. Not Okay if you're a Democrat and it's a Republican war.
