Bush Abandons US Soldier Behind Enemy Lines

Hey, all you conservatives, did you notice this yesterday? While Bush, McCain and the rest of the nut jobs were blathering on about Kerry's mangled sentence (as if Bush was one to try to talk), Bush abondoned an American soldier behind enemy lines:
Extra checkpoints were set up last week as U.S. troops launched an intensive search for a missing soldier, who has yet to be found.

Shortly after leaving Sadr city, U.S. troops dismantled other checkpoints in the downtown Karradah neighborhood where the soldier had been abducted, loading barbed wire coils onto their Stryker armored vehicles.
Conservative blogger Andrew Sullivan notes:
The U.S. military does not have a traditional of abandoning its own soldiers to foreign militias, or of taking orders from foreign governments. No commander-in-chief who actually walks the walk, rather than swaggering the swagger, would acquiesce to such a thing.... And where, by the way, is McCain on this? ... Silent recently on Iraq. But vocal - oh, how vocal - on Kerry.
Where is everyone on this? We have now abandoned a soldier because Bush wants to kiss Iraqi ass now. Shameful.
