John McCain: Conflict In Iraq is “Over” Because “Mission Accomplished” Banner Said So (VIDEO)

On May 1, 2003, unbeknownst to you, conflict in Iraq was over. Or so said the Man Who Would Be President, John McCain:

CAVUTO: … Senator, "after a conflict" means "after the conflict," and many argue the conflict isn’t over.

MCCAIN: Well, then why was there a banner that said ‘mission accomplished’ on the aircraft carrier? The conflict…the major conflict is over, the regime change has been accomplished.

Well, I guess we know why McCain doesn’t think Bush should be "blamed" for the "Mission Accomplished" banner.  It was right!
