Did I Miss Something?

By now, everyone knows of the amazing events that took place on Thursday. Likewise, many of you may know that another US politician is in Iraq - Hillary Clinton.

I think it's safe to say that Bush upstaged the junior senator from New York, but I want to bring to your attention something that may be passed over too briefly. Ms. Clinton has insisted that the UN become more involved in Iraq:

"I'm a big believer that we ought to internationalize this, but it will take a big change in our administration's thinking," said Clinton, a Democrat from New York. "I don't see that it's forthcoming."
Ummm...Ms. Clinton? The UN has been in Iraq. They actually left, even though we didn't want them to do so.

So for what are you calling, senator? Are you lambasting Bush for not involving the international community (a patent falsehood)? Or are you trying to get the same UN that fled Iraq with its tail between its legs to come back and 'legitimize' the operations? (Scare quotes courtesy of Reuters "News" Agency).

On another note, there was apparently a protest in Baghdad - but get this: it was anti-Terror. So far, I haven't seen any US media outlets pick this one up. Seems they're too busy trying to be subtle (so President's visit = soldier's death?).
