More Evidence McCain is Unable to Keep His Shit Straight

This time he put out his peculiar version of the verdict against Ossamma's driver in writing! Which means not only he can't get facts straight, neither can his campaign. Lieberman is on his short list for the VP position, and now we know why. As big a turd as he is, he can at least read the paper and parrot what was reported without getting it all gummed up:

Think Progress McCain Gets His Hamdan Facts Wrong, Falsely Claims He Was Found Guilty Of ‘Supplying Weapons’ In Afghanistan

That is a real prize you boys in the GOP picked. Jim

Hey. I voted for Paul.



Amazing how antiquarian it looks even though it is from the 2000's.

Hamdan was convicted of providing material support to Al-Qaeda. But McCains comment is not a material error. The article headline was a bit of hyperbole.

The real issue is what will Hamdan do back home in 5 months.

Yes, the comment was a material error and the headline was a direct reflection of McCain's comment. "The jury found that the prosecution lawyers had proven, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Hamdan had aided terrorists by supplying weapons to Al Qaeda and Taliban forces in Afghanistan."

This process of bringing terrorists to justice has been too long delayed, but I'm encouraged that it is finally moving forward. I supported that legislation, which was a good-faith effort by Congress to meet the Supreme Court's direction to establish a process to bring terrorist detainees to trial. Salim Ahmed Hamdan, a trusted confidante of Osama Bin Laden, was provided a full hearing of the charges against him and was represented by counsel who vigorously defended him. The jury found that the prosecution lawyers had proven, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Hamdan had aided terrorists by supplying weapons to Al Qaeda and Taliban forces in Afghanistan. This process demonstrated that military commissions can effectively bring very dangerous terrorists to justice. The fact that the jury did not find Hamdan guilty of all of the charges brought against him demonstrates that the jury weighed the evidence carefully. Unlike Senator Obama who voted against the MCA and favors giving Al Qaeda terrorists direct access to U.S. civilian courts to contest their detention, I recognize that we cannot treat dangerous terrorists captured on the battlefield as we would common criminals.
Candidates React to Hamdan - Real Clear Politics - Elections 2008 - TIME

So where is the hyperbola?

"America is, is no longer, uh, what it could be, what it, it once was," Obama said haltingly. "And I say to myself, I don't want that future for my children.

So what's the fuss about McCain?
