Summary: An Iraq war veteran chastises McCain for not working with Iraq on withdrawing troops.
Script of "Iraqi Freedom" (TV)
BRANDON WOODS: What do we fight for in Iraq? I have some idea.
I fought in Operation Iraqi Freedom. And "freedom" means that when the Iraqi people and their prime minister ask us to make a plan to leave, we do.
But Senator McCain would occupy Iraq indefinitely, against their wishes. That's not what freedom means. That's not what we fought for. Senator, I thought you would know better.
