BAGHDAD, Iraq — U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made an unannounced visit to Iraq on Tuesday and dropped in on the volatile northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, a U.S. Embassy spokesman in Baghdad confirmed.
How long does it take before we stop calling them “surprise visits to Iraq”? At some point, if your Secretary of State has to sneak into the country just to check up on things, the “surprise” is more about the lack of security in Iraq and less about a fun winter visit to Mesopotamia.
A fun search to do.
Golly, gee! That’s a lot of surprises! One of these days I’d like to see our diplomats visit the
sandy shithole place where all this success is happening without the flak helmets and evasive maneuvers.
Besides, when is the last time Condi has paid a “surprise” visit to someplace like Canada?
