McCain Strolls Through Baghdad Market, Accompanied By 100 Soldiers, 3 Blackhawks, 2 Apache Gunships

Sen. John McCain strolled briefly through an open-air market in Baghdad today in an effort to prove that Americans are “not getting the full picture” of what’s going on in Iraq.

NBC’s Nightly News provided further details about McCain’s one-hour guided tour. He was accompanied by “100 American soldiers, with three Blackhawk helicopters, and two Apache gunships overhead.” Still photographs provided by the military to NBC News seemed to show McCain wearing a bulletproof vest during his visit. Watch it:

McCain recently claimed that there “are neighborhoods in Baghdad where you and I could walk through those neighborhoods, today.” In a press conference after his Baghdad tour, McCain told a reporter that his visit to the market today was proof that you could indeed “walk freely” in some areas of Baghdad.

Digg It!

that picture is such a money shot, add the caption, "see, it's like disney world"

It actually is safe in Iraq, if your a member of some resistance group. They're the ones that walk freely apparently.

Did Johnny get to check out a house to house search?

sing along...

"When johnny comes marching home again...

the men will fear, the page boys will shout

the ladies they'll all scream in doubt

and the GOP will all be gay

when johnny comes marching home"
