Senators Regret Remarks on Troops

WASHINGTON, March 1 — They come from different parties and have opposite views on what should be done in Iraq. But both Senator John McCain and Senator Barack Obama have now had to express regret for saying that American lives have been “wasted” in battle.

Mr. McCain, the Arizona Republican who has been a big supporter of the war and has backed President Bush’s call for more troops, made his remarks Wednesday in an appearance on “Late Show With David Letterman” while criticizing the White House’s management of the war.

“Americans are very frustrated, and they have every right to be,” he said. “We’ve wasted a lot of our most precious treasure, which is American lives, over there.”
