Desperate to justify their unconstitutional invasion of Iraq, many members of Congress have flown to the war-torn country for the obligatory photo-op with smiling Iraqis and proud U.S. soldiers. It's as if they're saying, "See? Iraq isn't as bad as the pictures you're shown by the liberal, anti-war media. Our
pictures show the truth of just how good things are over here."
Here are a couple of shots from Senator John McCain's recent visit:
Not pictured are the other 100-plus soldiers, the armored Humvees, the sharpshooters on the rooftops, and the attack helicopters circling overhead. Yes, if nothing else, these images prove just how free and safe Iraq is with Saddam out of the picture.
Too bad these pictures aren't being shown to the Iraqis. Some of them are still under the impression
that with all the car bombings, sniper shootings, and gun fights in the streets, their homeland really isn't the democratic utopia our government says it is.
