Senator John McCain says his Democratic rival's trip to the Middle East exposes Obama's weakness and lack of experience.McCain took the weekend off from the campaign trail, but in a radio address Saturday, he was critical of Obama making a policy statement on the Middle East, and then deciding to visit the commanders in the field.

"My opponent, Senator Obama, announced his strategy for Afghanistan and Iraq before departing on a fact-finding mission that will include visits to both those countries. Apparently, he's confident enough that he won't find any facts that might change his opinion or alter his strategy. Remarkable," McCain said.

While Obama is overseas, McCain will tour battleground states in the United States, with a focus on domestic issues.
