McCain 2003: "We will be welcomed as liberators"

Posting on Daily Kos today -- the fifth anniversay of the slam-dunk invasion of Iraq -- Bill in Portland Maine offers up these 2002-2003 quotes from Senator John McCain:

"I believe that the success will be fairly easy." (9/24/02)
"We’re not going to have a bloodletting of trading American bodies for Iraqi bodies." (9/29/02)
"We will win this conflict. We will win it easily." (1/22/03)
"[T]here’s no doubt in my mind, once these people are gone, that we will be welcomed as liberators." (3/24/03)

Sen. McCain should know better than to be a cheerleader for a war promulgated by chickenhawks. A Vietnam veteran, a former POW during our nation's longest and most ill-advised war (until now), McCain should have seen through the Bush/Cheney smokescreen. Makes you wonder about his judgement on foreign policy.
