Spencer Ackerman: “Since he began running for president, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has embraced President George W. Bush’s foreign policy. He has done so for a simple and understandable reason: it was McCain’s policy first.” You’ll be reading more on this from me coming soon to a magazine near you, but yes — Bush’s worst moments have come when he’s embraced an approach to foreign policy that McCain’s been pushing for over ten years now.
