Crooked McCain's Iraq Trip Con ...
We see McCain buggered off to Baghdad to try to prove his
Well, we wonder whether he's had a chance to see what we've seen yet.
What John McCain Didn't Tell You
by Larry C Johnson
While John McCain was excoriating the press in Baghdad yesterday for not presenting the "full story" about how swell things are in Iraq he neglected to mention the pre-visit security sweep that made that neighborhood stroll so safe.
I am sure you have already heard about the 100 soldiers, the three Blackhawk helicopters and two Apache gunships that accompanied his entourage, but did you hear about the soldiers who swept the area before the American legislators and their security team showed up?
Who cares about those mooks? They are expendable.
John McCain and Lindsey Graham put American soldiers' lives at risk just so they could have a photo op. That's the bottom line.
Why didn't they do a ride along on a real patrol? Perhaps they could have joined the U.S. team that responded to an ambush of an American patrol yesterday? Of course a total of six U.S. soldiers died in that operation.
Who the hell does this man McCain think he's kidding with this kind of crap?
And anyway, in order to find out for himself any real, everyday Iraq facts at all, he needn't have bloody bothered going anywhere.
Other than right here.
And don't just take our word for it; go see for yourself.
