Fresh from a visit to Baghdad, Senator John McCain says any hasty pullout from Iraq would be a mistake. He says such a move would favor Iran and al-Qaida.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee held meetings Monday with Iraqi and U.S. diplomatic and military officials in Iraq.

In Jordan, the latest stop in his travels, McCain told reporters that he's encouraged by the success of the surge and the reduction of U.S. casualties. As to the threats from al-Qaida and Iran's growing influence, McCain says "we are succeeding, but we still have a long way to go."

It was McCain's eighth visit to Iraq. He is accompanied by Senators Joe Lieberman and Lindsey Graham.

Their travels will also take them to Israel, Britain and France.

    I wish this domestic enemy (terrorist) John McCain would stop using fear to try to convince the American people to support this illegal war. It's too bad that he's already been chosen by the globalist elite to be the next president and will be despite what the American people (you know...his employer) want.
