He then returned to the room briefly and told the senators he was feeling a little bit light-headed. Petraues joked that McCain's question wasn't the cause.

    But he never mentioned that McCain's breath wasn't the cause either. Interesting ...

    This will just cause further problems. Nobody has a stomach that strong.
