    I may not agree with much of the politics of these three, but still thank them enormously for spending time with our troops in Afghanistan. Even if I disagree with a politician's take on the war, it is far easier to respect their opinion if they go there. To that end, while not there right now, Joe Lieberman is the champion of them all.

    We should let the troops and generals on the ground call the moves, not politicians wasting tax payer money on these useless trips.

    I would have thought they would split them up into at least two helecopters. – Wouldn't want to lose the whole kitty.

    Glad senators are OK, well, maybe I could careless about Kerry. But Biden and Hagel have my good wishes.

    Why would Obama go to either war zone? After all, Michelle-with-the-pants, hasn't been proud of the deeds of her country till two days ago, she probably wouldn't let him go, But, then again Obama would not go, he wants to wage his own war by bombing Pakistan. God have mercy on this country.
