BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) – For a few hours on Monday, the halls of Saddam Hussein's Republican Palace - the seat of his rule - looked like a scene from the U.S. Capitol.
Trademark cup of coffee in hand, Sen. John McCain of Arizona strode down the hall, then turned in to a meeting room to be joined by two legislative and political allies, Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut.
A few yards away, a security detail ushered Vice President Dick Cheney, who serves as president of the Senate in his constitutional role, into another meeting.
Both the vice president and the Senate delegation were here for a firsthand look at the security and political situation in Iraq, and their agendas both included time with the U.S. commanding general as well as senior Iraqi officials.
McCain has Carl ROve in his campaign. Watch yo backs DEMS!
Folks, 3 am call already came! And it is an emergency scream from your economy.
Wake up and ask whatever candidate you adore real questions about real issues!
Question to the Bushie loyals and all the rest of the stupid republicans?
If Iraq is so safe, then why are we still there????
I don't believe the surge is working as much as McCain claims. The reason why the violence has abated is because of the cease fire ordered by Muqtada Al Sadr. It makes you wonder whether the US government is paying him to make it look like the strategy is working.
