McCain takes a stroll outside the Green Zone

Desperate to shed the "doddering old fool" label that is sticking to him like a second skin, John McCain today took a stroll in Baghdad.

Wasn't quite unaccompanied tho' - he was in a flak-jacket, surrounded by a hundred heavily armed American troops and just for good measure, three Blackhawks and two Apache gunships were buzzing overhead.

About a mile away, six Americans were killed.

I wonder if some of them died because they were undermanned as a result of McCain's security detail?

Six lives. An equitable trade for keeping Mad Jack safe. I'm sure the six dead would have had little use for an additional 100 troops...3 Blackhawks...and 2 Apache Gunships. Don't ya think?
