DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, vowed Wednesday that if he were president he would get Osama bin Laden. As president of the United States I will get him, McCain said. Ill bring bin Laden to justice, I promise you. The comments came during an event at an AmVets Hall in Iowa, a stop on the senators No Surrender tour across the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina. Referring to bin Ladens ability to reach millions of potential followers through his videos, McCain said, Do not underestimate the influence of Osama bin Laden. Thats why I say we have to get him. When asked who or what is to blame for the fact that bin Laden is still free, McCain cited a failure of U.S. intelligence capabilities and the Clinton administrations failure to attack when they knew where he was. Im sorry to tell you that our human intelligence capabilities are still very badly lacking, he added. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...%99-bin-laden/ I think Senator McCain is the only person in this election that can keep this promise. He has the leadership and military command experience to carry this out. He is clearly the best candidate we have.
