"Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 11, I will be giving a major address at the Virginia Military Institute on the war in Iraq, the consequences of failure, and the reasons for very cautious optimism. The speech will be broadcast live on my website, www.JohnMcCain.com, at 11:30 a.m. EDT tomorrow. Please join me for this speech and encourage others to do so as well. Having recently returned from Iraq, I was encouraged by the signs of progress I saw on the ground being made there under the leadership of General Petraeus. If you did not see it, I hope you will also read an op-ed I wrote on the topic for last Sunday's Washington Post."
The ongoing war in Iraq and the broader fight against terrorism is the preeminent issue of our time. We must be steadfast in our efforts and cannot surrender the battle before we have given this new strategy, a strategy for which I have long advocated, a chance to work.”
