The Lies Go On

by Bluebear2

Last Sunday Senator and Republican presidential candidate John McCain made a big deal out of going shopping at the mall in Baghdad. He issued a glowing report on how well things were going there. Previously he claimed it was just as safe as walking in any large US city.

What wasn't well publicized by the MSM was the fact that he was wearing a flack jacket, was accompanied by 100 US soldiers, had three Blackhawk helicopters and two Apache gun ships and rode in armored vehicles.

Wolf Blitzer questions McCain's reality in an interview with embedded reporter Michael Ware who has been in Baghdad for the last 4 years.

Keith Olbermann checks in on the subject with Ex-CIA specialist Larry Johnson.

Juan Cole reports that the very next day after McCain's visit:
21 Shia market workers were ambushed, bound and shot dead north of the capital. The victims came from the Baghdad market [Shurja] visited the previous day by John McCain, the US presidential candidate, who said that an American security plan in the capital was starting to show signs of progress."
When will our government stop lying to us? When will the deceptions stop? Don't they know we don't believe them anymore? When will they stop using our troops for their photo-op propaganda? When will this nightmare end?

When will the Democrats live up to their promise and get to serious work on the issues that drove their rise to power in the last election? When will they impeach these traitors to the Constitution and ride them out of town, tarred and feathered on a rail or straight to the guillotine?
