    Is it old age, John, or are you just a vindictive little fucker?

    The whole fucking world knows Barack Obama will be in Iraq this weekend. All three networks are touting it. This is a fucking security breach?

    I mean, it's not like he stuffed classified documents down his pants and smuggled them out of the national archives.

    It's not a security breach.

    It's a protocol breach.

    And Sen. McCain certainly knows better.

    IMHO, he's tired of letting Obama get under his skin, and trying to play back at that.

    Obama would be best served by doing what he intends to do: Going overseas and looking like the leader who can rally the rest of the world that we've needed for the past 7 1/2 years.

    There was no specific announcement of when he'd be in Iraq or Afghanistan. They do that on purpose since that's what the military advises them to do. In fact, many media outlets reported/surmised that he'd begin the trip in Jordan. Bottom line, McCain potentially compromised the security of a Congressional delegation traveling to a war zone by letting the cat out of the bag.

    Uh, NBC, CBS and ABC are sending their fucking anchors on this political junket. It's not that fucking hard to figure out where he's going to be.

    Doesn't make it OK for McCain to breach protocol. I mean, it's not like he takes too kindly to that in other circumstances.....(Thanks to 2MCM for the earlier link).

    Of course, the fact that there even needs to be security about going to Iraq, a place where corkscrew landings are needed to avoid getting shot down, says just about everything.

    What do you expect from McCain? After all, he visited Iraq, and proclaimed it perfectly safe.

    Of course, he also had tons of military personnel surrounding him while he was walking through the market.
