(2008-07-20) â€” Republican presidential nominee John McCain today for the first time said he can now support a timeline to reduce the American presence in Iraq, specifically advocating the withdrawal from Iraq of Democrat presidential nominee Barack Obama, and several battalions of U.S. news anchors and reporters.
â€œItâ€™s time to bring them home,â€ said Sen. McCain at a news conference attended by an journalism intern from the Des Moines Register. â€œThe surge has worked, and itâ€™s time to redeploy.â€
Sen. McCain said bringing Sen. Obama home would help to ensure that â€œpeople in the U.S., who desperately need media attention, will get the help they deserve.â€
â€œOur mainstream media forces are stretched too thin,â€ he said. â€œIf news should break here in the homeland, whoâ€™s going to cover it? Weâ€™re vulnerable.â€
