He forgot his recyclable shopping bag



You'd think that they'd know better by now after the fiasco of John McCain's stroll around a supposedly safe Baghdad market, but here we go again. The above is the dismal Bush loyalist General Peter Pace, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff and mercifully forced into retirement in a couple of months. He's on what is claimed to be an impromptu stroll around a Ramadi market, with everyone in sight wearing equipment that is doubtless available to the average Iraqi shopper as well.

In explaining the unplanned nature of the trip, the associated news release says that it happens because a sandstorm grounded his helicopter so he decided to take a walk around. Any possibility that the sandstorm grounded the insurgents as well?
