Rev. Hagee (audio) lauds Hitler, McCain renounces endoresement, Hagee withdraws endorsement

The Huffington Post had published a recording of Hagee saying that Adolf Hitler had been fulfilling Gods will by hastening the desire of Jews to return to Israel in accordance with biblical prophecy.

Obviously, I find these remarks and others deeply offensive and indefensible, and I repudiate them. I did not know of them before Reverend Hagee's endorsement, and I feel I must reject his endorsement as well, McCain said in a statement to CNN Thursday.


UPDATE: Citing critics who had been "grossly misrepresenting" his positions since his decision to back John McCain, Hagee withdrew that endorsement Thursday afternoon.

"I am tired of these baseless attacks and fear that they have become a distraction in what should be a national debate about important issues. I have therefore decided to withdraw my endorsement of Senator McCain for President effective today, and to remove myself from any active role in the 2008 campaign," he said in a statement.

"I hope that the Senator McCain will accept this withdrawal so that he may focus on the issues that are most important to America and the world."
