Democrat Barack Obama challenged Republican White House rival John McCain on Tuesday for using a heavily guarded trip to a Baghdad market as evidence that Iraq's security is improving. McCain and other members of a congressional delegation toured the Bab al-Sharqi market last week, traveling in armored military vehicles, wearing body armor and guarded by US soldiers during their hourlong excursion.
