FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. - Barack Obama Wednesday mocked John McCain for a gaffe the presumptive Republican nominee made a day earlier during a visit to the Middle East mixing up which side Iran is backing in the ongoing conflict in Iraq.
Speaking on the fifth anniversary of the start of the Iraq war, Obama also suggested Democratic rival Hillary Clinton could not be trusted to end the war because her opposition only began as she was nearing a presidential bid.
Don't be too harsh on her. Again, she was duped, along with the entire nation. You were one of, what, seven people who opposed the war from the start?
