July 15, 2008: Obama and McCain trade attacks over Iraq (AFP)

  • Citing Iraqi leaders who have come out in support of a timetable for the removal of US troops, Obama accused McCain and President George W. Bush of pursuing a strategy that defies "the will of the Iraqi people, the American people and the security interests of the United States."
  • "That kind of old-school fear mongering is exactly what the American people are tired of and they won't be fooled by," she said, accusing the McCain camp of impugning Obama's character.
