John McCain/Dick Cheney Pay Surprise Visit To Iraq



TROOPS RESOLUTE

FORWARD OPERATING BASE NORMANDY, Iraq — At the five-year mark since U.S. troops entered Iraq, warriors here continue fighting and dealing with the consequences.

It is doubtful that Army Capt. Vince Morris, a hard-charging company commander with the 3rd Squadron, 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment normally stationed in Vilsek, Germany, is tracking the anniversary debates. He is in a military hospital recovering from the severe concussion he suffered when his armored vehicle exploded immediately outside the entrance to this base, northeast of Baqouba.



Sgt. Rob Robertson will be working from his combat operations post — without television, radio or newspapers — in the town of Himbus, in Diyala's "breadbasket." He will be conducting foot patrols and searching for improvised explosive devices (IEDs), weapons caches and terrorists who went into hiding after a major U.S. and Iraqi push into the region in January.



When he is not on combat duty, he and other men of Iron Company will comb through scores of applications from people in his area wanting to join Concerned Local Citizens groups, the armed neighborhood-watch units renamed Sons of Iraq, which are viewed as a major contributor to increased security in parts of the country.



"What about this one, this Ahmed guy?" he asked a colleague recently while sitting in his tent. "He was a sergeant in Saddam's army."



Ahmed was photographed, questioned and fingerprinted during a recruitment drive. If he passes initial vetting, he could be given a midlevel leadership spot in a Sons of Iraq unit at $450 a month.



Capt. Matt Ross and Lt. Andy Teague of Golf Company are absorbed elsewhere. They are trying to persuade Sunni residents forced from their village by Shi'ite Mahdi militiamen — who also are thought to be members of the local Iraqi police force — to identify the culprits so they can be arrested.

"I showed [one of the displaced families] the book of photographs of the IPs," Lt. Teague told the captain, referencing the records of Iraqi police.

My reference is to his flippant ignorant dismissal of credibility to all-things blog, simply because the blog owner/writer might not be a professional journalist. Nevermind that someone like the McClatchy Reporter didn't even bother to read the Report before writing the article.

Scott's going through and reading all five volumes of the 1600 pages, btw.

Yet somehow, because Scott's writing on a blog, he has less credibility than Warren P. Strobel. Go figure.

I've only gone through the 94 page executive summary.

George Bush has no military experience and he, at some point in all of the confusion, seemed to be qualified to be president.

McSame has experience in Middle East affairs? Really? That would not be evident from his repeated mix-up/poor comprehension of militant groups in Iraq.

Other than the "N" and the "Q", does McSame understand the differences in the two countries?
It doesn't appear that he does.

John McExpert!

Marie, your "Zarqawi's broken leg" is making more sense than McShame's assessment.

I vote you over McFused!

Ding, Ding, Ding, Wrong again dufuss!

George Bush was a fighter pilot in the Air National Guard (That does count ya know) he may not have seen combat, but he sure as hell would have known what to do if he had!

I dont think either Hillary nor Obama have had ANY qualifying experience in the Military of any kind!

Which is not what we need when we are at war.

Ohhhhhhhh excuse him for mixing up words, McCain has been to Iraq and Aghanistan 10 times now, I bet neither Democrat candidate has been there ONCE! Well maybe Hilldabeast, but how about Obama? Has he even visited our Troops there? HELL NO!!

Face it our Troops dont want him as Commander-In-Cheif. Our Troops jump for joy when they see McCain, they dont even care about Barack Hussein Obama nor Hillary Clinton.

Well show me proof Zarqowi DIDNT go to Iraq for a leg operation. I have shown you Proof, let's see yours! I never said "Broken" either. I said "Leg Operation"!

Pay attention!!

The question of military experience is an interesting one.
Thomas Jefferson (none) doubled the size of the U.S. without firing a shot. Reagan's war experience was making a film in 1943 about how to identify a Jap
Zero (look for the red ball).
McGovern and Dole were genuine war heros, but were totally rejected by the voting public. So, is miltary experience necessary?

BB,

Be careful, you appear to be making sense using logic and factual history---neither of which are acceptable on this blog.

Good points.

Marie,

You're still posting links of stories by the tabloid Newsmax??? LMAO!

Are you kidding? It touts itself as being "The #1 conservative news agency online"! LOL...and you are questioning the left-wing radicals who get their news from Daily Kos?

You're as bad as they are!

You might as well get your news from PNAC.

Newsmax teams up with Random House to buy all of the books by Mann Coulter, O'Reilly and Hannity that haven't sold. By doing so, they buy just enough to get it on a best-seller list.

How pathetic is that?

And to think McCain and Cheney were off to foreign lands doing executive type things while Obama was doing really important stuff at home like calling his dear old granny "a typical white person" racist.

Awwww Indigo...

You watch too much Fox News, as they ran that clip to death, choosing not to run Obama's thought in its entirety. In fact, Chris Wallace blasted his colleagues on Fox and Friends for not running the entire clip on that exact same point!
That's not what Obama said at all. But, if you feel better for attempting to make a point by providing inaccurate statements, that's your choice to be dishonest.

I would expect nothing less from the right-wingers

BB,

I'm not quite sure Military Experience is required to become President in fact it's not.

But it sure helps to have some when we are at WAR!!!

You are like a broken record.

Same crap over and over again and again.




Indigo,

Next the Obama campaign will be yelling "Kill Whitey"!!!!

Isnt this election just amazing?

Federalist is behaving more and more like an unhinged troll.


Military service isn't an indicator of whether or not someone is qualified to be president. But the left have made it into such a big issue....which is why they put forth John Kerry (did you folks know he served in Vietnam?) as their 2004 candidate.

Since they can't say McCain didn't serve, they have to dismiss that military service has any merit as a qualifier.

Of course, they can always put forth the idiotic chickenhawk argument "if he loves war so much, why doesn't he force his children to serve?"

Oh....waitaminute....guess that one's off the table, too, ain't it?

Word,

You have to be kidding, John Kerry served in Nam? lol


You are correct ha I didnt think of any of that, all that was put on the table last election will sure be off with McCain as the Nominee.
