How Safe Is Iraq These Days? Bush Schedules Meeting With Iraqi Leader ... In Jordan

President Bush plans to fly to Jordan next week to meet with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, as the two leaders try to revitalize the war effort, the White House announced.

The trip -- called a "surprise" although it is being announced a week in advance -- is part of an effort to review the gameplan after spiraling violence in Iraq and voter rejection at home.

But why is the meeting in Jordan?

Should Americans take the meeting site as a sign that even the heavily guarded "green zone" in Baghdad -- where a car bomb Wednesday was set off intending to kill Iraq's speaker of parliament -- isn't safe enough for a presidential arrival?

Don't forget that when Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice traveled to Iraq last month, she had to wear a bullet-proof vest -- at an airport that the U.S. supposedly secured two years ago.

This may be one factoid the mainstream media will overlook -- as the Washington Post did in its coverage this week -- but would be hard to spin if someone in the White House press corps dared ask.

Any press member who does not ask such a painfully obvious question is either a Bushie suckup or not worthy to report for a high school newspaper.
The MSM in an alliance with Bush in destroying the U.S. is painful enough to observe.

The only thing God had to do with Bush getting elected President was to punish the world and wake it up!. Iraq is God's punishment for Bush and his followers for their sins and my guess is He has greater plans for many of them after his term is over!
