Belief is not fact

As another presidential election approaches, one candidate’s words seem to keep being bent by what he believes he needs to say to gain favorable public support. That candidate: John McCain.

One thing that McCain isn’t hesitant to speak about is his military background and how it gives him an advantage over Barack Obama. That alleged advantage has been addressed by Wesley Clark, whose military experience far surpasses McCain’s.

Here’s what Clark said about McCain’s military background: “The truth is that, in national security terms, he’s largely untested and untried. He’s never been responsible for policy formulation. He’s never had leadership in a crisis, or in anything larger than his own element on an aircraft carrier or [in managing] his own congressional staff. It’s not clear that this is going to be the strong suit that he thinks it is” (Source).
