Brzezinski repeats 100-years calumny

In the Washington Post, Brzezinski repeats the lie:

Both Democratic presidential candidates agree that the United States should end its combat mission in Iraq within 12 to 16 months of their possible inauguration. The Republican candidate has spoken of continuing the war, even for a hundred years, until “victory.”

(Via the Corner.) 

Of course, that is exactly not what McCain said.  Now Brzezinski is a politician, so we shouldn’t be shocked when he lies.  The Washington Post, on the other hand, looks bad here.  Aren’t there supposed to be standards of accuracy even for op-ed pieces?

UPDATE: Better link for McCain’s actual remark.
