Stunning repercussion from McCain's Baghdad walkabout

Frank Rich picks up on a shocking report in his column today which is critical of John McCain's photo-op stroll in a Baghdad market last week, "Sunday in the Market With McCain." Rich cites this report:
The day after Mr. McCain’s stroll, The Times of London reported that 21 of the Shorja market’s merchants and workers were ambushed and murdered.
The link to the Times of London story is here. If this is indeed true, John McCain's foolish stroll to support his political position on the war and the recent "surge" was, as Rich puts it, truly indefensible.
