The Young Turks Cenk Uygur let Sen. John McCain have it for the audacity it took to take to attack the Obama administration for the deteriorating situation in Iraq.
June 12, 2014

Following Sen. John McCain's tirade this Thursday, where he blamed the Obama administration for the deteriorating situation in Iraq, and demanded that Obama’s entire national security team resign, The Young Turks Cenk Uygur gave him the treatment he deserved.

As Cenk rightfully pointed out, if there's anyone who should be fired over this, it's not members the Obama administration. It's John McCain.

UYGUR: You know who deserves scorn and disdain? Your sorry ass, who wanted to go to Iraq in the first place. You want to go back into Iraq? You think that's a genius move? Oh, we shouldn't have left Iraq in the first place. How long were we going to stay there? Ten years? Twenty years? Thirty years? They don't want to be together, the Sunni and the Shia and the Kurds, they don't want to be together. That's why we shouldn't have gone in there and destabilized them, and destabilized the whole Middle East.

But this idiot thinks the lesson was, we didn't stay long enough.

You'll have to watch the clip for the rest of the rant. Sadly he's not treated with the same amount of disdain by the better part of our corporate media. MSNBC's Chris Hayes did do a nice job of reminding his viewers of just how completely wrong John McCain's predictions when it comes to Iraq have been over the last decade or so on his show this Thursday as well.

Can you help us out?
