This explanation is almost too uncomfortable to watch. Almost. It's amazing how some people cannot simply admit to making a mistake. McCain is struggling to get out of this mess he created and he ends up making it worse. Now, only two explanations make sense: either he is completely unaware of the true history of the surge or he is a liar who assumes the American public and media are not paying attention. The whole debacle is so unbelievably bizarre that a Bushism seems appropriate.
"Now, there are some who would like to rewrite history—revisionist historians is what I like to call them."—George W. Bush
