John McCain: Commander in Chief of the Israeli Military?

In a story on the L.A. Times blog Top of the Ticket about John McCain's new position that he thinks American combat troops will be out of Iraq by 2013, the Times includes this photo.

Pardon me for asking, but at what point did American Presidents command Israeli solders?

In their dreams on how to use the 3 Annapolis "monitor" generals: Dayton, Fraser and McCain's friend (Retd) Gen. James L. Jones, current Middle East envoy?

Obviously a member of the New York National Guard's 11th Kitten Battalion.

Why were you reading the Los Angeles Times.

Gee, didn't you know that the vast neocon-zionist conspiracy controls both?

Meh, the Democrats can't tell Canadian troops from U.S. troops,

why should we expect different behaviour from the L.A. Times?

Perhaps it is in the "Secret Protocalls of Zion". ;)

Looks peaceful, but I've been to anti-Bush rallies where the National Guard thugs were using those animals to intimidate the crowd.
