After a heavily guarded walk through a newly fortified Baghdad market, Sen. John McCain declared that the American public was not getting "a full picture" of the progress unfolding in Iraq.
McCain...cited a drop in murders, the creation of a constellation of joint U.S.-Iraqi military outposts and a rise in intelligence tips as signs of the progress.
"These and other indications are reason for cautious optimism," McCain said.
His comments came on a day when the military reported that six American soldiers had been killed by roadside bombs southwest of Baghdad.
More evidence, if any was needed, that John McCain is at least as disconnected from reality as our current president.
