John McCain not only made a serious and potentially dangerous security blunder when he announced to the world that Barack Obama was supposed to be in Iraq this weekend
“I believe that either today or tomorrow — and I’m not privy to his
schedule — Sen. Obama will be landing in Iraq with some other
senators” who make up a congressional delegation, McCain told a
campaign fund-raising luncheon.
He was wrong.
US Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama arrived in Afghanistan
Saturday to visit troops and assess efforts against extremist violence
at the start of a major international tour, officials said.
