ROAD TO THE WHITE HOUSE From CNN (By: Tom Pace, Talk of the Town) BREAKING: PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS 12:15pm 7-15-08  Sen. John McCain answered Barack Obama's speech on Iraq today, attacking the Illinois senator's opposition to the surge policy in Iraq and, highlighting his own proposal for victory in Afghanistan.

"Sen. Obama is departing soon on a trip abroad that will include a fact-finding mission to Iraq and Afghanistan. And I note that he is speaking today about his plans for Iraq and Afghanistan before he has even left, before he has talked to Gen. [David] Petraeus, before he has seen the progress in Iraq, and before he has set foot in Afghanistan for the first time," McCain said.

The Arizona Senator added, ."In my experience, fact-finding missions usually work best the other way around: first you assess the facts on the ground, then you present a new strategy." 

According to CNN, in today's speech, Obama said part of his new strategy will be "taking the fight to al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan."

Obama said on his first day in office he would give the military a new mission -- ending the war in Iraq.
