Hagel disputes McCain’s claim we can ‘win’ in Iraq: ‘Then we’ll be there forever.’

In an interview with CNN, Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) took issue with John McCain’s frequent declarations that we must “win” in Iraq. “This isn’t a win or lose,” Hagel said, adding:

We shouldn’t frame this up as a win-or-lose because, when we do that – and this is where I have a major disagreement with McCain, then on that basis we’ll be there forever.
