Tracking Madame Secretary:Secretary Of State Clinton in Iraq

April 25, 2009

Our SOS is in Iraq this morning after two suicide bombings that the media was refering to as the “24hrs of Hell” in Baghdad:

BAGHDAD – A deadly outburst of violence appears to be overwhelming Iraq’s police and military forces as American troops hand over greater control of cities across the country to them. On Friday, twin suicide bombings killed at least 60 people outside Baghdad’s most revered Shiite shrine, pushing the death toll in one 24-hour period to nearly 150.

Amazingly enough with so much happening around the world, the MSM here turns a blind eye because you know, we can’t have those suicide bombers escalating the violence when it has already been ordained that we are leaving. No “mission accomplished” moment for Iraq as that would ruin the all important *dead line*.   Whatever happened to that saying “We train to standard, not to time” a favorite response when a soldier would ask what time Sergeant’s Time Training on wednesday’s would end.  I guess now we have to give out a time to fit with the new rules and all. Gives a whole new meaning to “We fight as we train”.  The key factor seems to be *speed* & *time*.  There are things that I like to do fast but I promise you training soldiers on tasks they might need when they deploy is defenitely not one of them.
