McCain goes to Iraq
Senator John McCain, who has linked his success in the race for president with his position on the fighting in Iraq, was in Baghdad on Sunday for the first time since becoming the presumed Republican candidate, the Associated Press.
Though he was expected to go there, the details of McCain's visit were not released for security reasons, the U.S. Embassy said. It is undetermined who he met with, as no press conferences were held. CNN
He went with fellow members of the Armed Services Committee, Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, and Joseph Lieberman, I-Connecticut. CNN
