Wall Street Journal Mentioned Obama's Trip This Morning

The left is up in arms about John McCain mentioning that Barack Obama's Iraq trip is this weekend, although the Wall Street Journal had already announced to the world that Obama "departs for Iraq as early as this weekend." They did that 18 hours ago!!

Already I am seeing all sorts of manufactured outrage on the left, how dare John McCain leak Obama's schedule that was already reported on? The AUDACITY!!!

Well if the WSJ knew it and published the little tidbit, then how much of a secret was it?

What a joke these clowns are.

Par for the course for them.

[Update] For the record, here were McCain's actual words. H/T to Macsmind.

”I believe that either today or tomorrow - and I’m not privy to his schedule - Sen. Obama will be landing in Iraq with some other senators” who make up a congressional delegation”

[Update] It isn't often I disagree with the excellent commentary over at Hot Air, but I do not see where saying something that has already been published could be considered "sloppy", unless he just didn't see how early the WSJ publlished their piece.
