Summary
In this September 26, 2008 ABC News debate, presidential candidates Senators John McCain and Barack Obama respond to Jim Lehrer's questions about their positions on the financial crisis and economic recovery plan; federal budget priorities and tax cuts; strategies in Iraq and Afghanistan; potential threats from Iran; diplomacy with Russia; and national security improvements since 9/11. Obama argues for targeting Al-Qaeda strongholds in Afghanistan and Pakistan while withdrawing from Iraq to save money for healthcare, education, and other domestic programs in need. McCain advocates seeing General Petraeus' plan through in Iraq, putting a freeze on government spending, and forming new alliance to put sanctions on Iran. Obama advocates using diplomacy with Iran and investing in nuclear non-proliferation efforts with Russia. McCain questions Obama's leadership experience
