President Obama in Iraq

A surprise visit? Not really. I was thinking about it last night, after I heard his speech in Ankara. That was a great speech, by the way.

President Obama Lands in Baghdad for Surprise Visit to Troops

'President Obama made a surprise detour on his way home from his European trip, stopping in Baghdad today to meet with U.S. commanders and consult with Iraqi officials.

Obama said there has been "significant political progress," in Iraq but noted there is still "a lot of work to be done.'
