Distorting McCain

In his speech earlier today on Iraq, Senator McCain said the following:

“The dramatic reduction in violence has opened the way for a return to something approaching normal political and economic life for the average Iraqi.” (Emphasis added.)

Over at the Huffington Post, the distortion patrol set about its work immediately, writing:

Addressing the Veterans of Foreign Wars, McCain criticized Obama and Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and insisted that last year’s U.S. troop buildup in Iraq brought a glimmer of “something approaching normal” there, despite a recent outbreak of heavy fighting and a U.S. death toll that has surpassed 4,000.

What a bald and crass deception, one that would be embarrassing to any serious website. But don’t count on a correction from HuffPo.
