FACT: McCain Said "I Believe That The Success Will Be Fairly Easy." During an appearance on CNN's Larry King Live, McCain said, "I know that as successful as I believe we will be, and I believe that the success will be fairly easy, we will still lose some American young men or women. And that's a great tragedy." [CNN, "Larry King Live," 9/24/02]

FACT: McCain Said "And There's No Doubt In My Mind That... We Will Be Welcomed As Liberators." During an appearance on MSNBC's Hardball, McCain said, "I don't know how long they'll hang out. It doesn't take a large number of people to cause difficulties in house to house fighting we've just seen that in southern Iraq. But there's no doubt in my mind that we will prevail and there's no doubt in my mind, once these people are gone, that we will be welcomed as liberators." [MSNBC, "Hardball," 3/24/03]

FACT: McCain Said "I Believe That We Can Win An Overwhelming Victory In A Very Short Period Of Time." During an appearance on CNN's Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer, McCain said, "I believe that the United States military capabilities are such that we can win a victory in a relatively short time. And I, again, I don't think it's, quote, 'easy,' but I believe that we can win an overwhelming victory in a very short period of time." [CNN, "Late Edition," 9/29/02]

FACT: McCain Said "This Is A Mission Accomplished." During an interview on ABC News' "This Week" McCain was asked about the capture of Saddam Hussein and the effect on US Forces. McCain said, "Their morale could not be higher. This is a mission accomplished. They know how much influence Saddam Hussein had on the Iraqi people, how much more difficult it made to get their cooperation. Every member of the military and civilian over there are rejoicing today. It was interesting to see Ambassador Bremer's emotion. It was well- deserved." [ABC, "This Week," 12/14/03]
