Republican presidential candidate John McCain, defending his decision to hold a campaign rally on the sixth anniversary of 9/11: "I can't think of a better way to remember and revere [9/11 victims'] memories and prevent further tragedies and attacks on the United States than to rally support for what Gen. Petraeus in his testimony today [said] was now the central battlefield in the war against terror, Iraq."
