This whole trip to Iraq / troop level spat etc...  is sort of silly.  But I gotta say that when McCain's Senior Foreign Policy Advisor Randy Scheunemann says:

The difference is so minuscule that I'm not sure it rises to the level of nitpicking.

Well, that's just blatantly insensitive.  That's 20,000 American troops and their families that you are talking about.

To be fair to McCain, the so-called "Surge" didn't even "surge" to the number of troops in OIF in late 2005/early 2006.

I do, however, like that this blog has arrogated unto itself the moral authority to speak for 20,000 troops and their families. Stay classy, San Diego.
