McCain Agrees With Gates

"Joe Biden has been wrong on almost every foreign policy issue over the past few decades"

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) agreed with Former Defense Secretary Gates’ assertion that Vice President Biden has been wrong on most foreign policy issues, telling CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Biden has been wrong "going all the way back to Desert Storm."

"I’ve never had a discussion or argument with him that became personal," McCain said, "but he has been wrong on a lot of these issues. There’s very little doubt about that going back to Desert Storm."

Asked to expand by Blitzer, McCain also cited Biden’s support for a removal of all troops from Iraq, and that his aides have expressed support for a "zero option" in Afghanistan.

McCain’s remarks come in response to Gates’ new book, Duty, in which Gates asserted Biden has "been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades."
