Another "surprise" visit to Iraq

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

This time it's Bush in Baghdad according to CNN.

NBC confirms:

The first report came via Iraqi state television, and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad confirmed the visit with NBC News.

Bush’s visit is expected to last five hours, during which he will likely meet with American troops.
AP's account shows how much we trust the new Iraqi Prime Minister. He didn't even know Bush was coming:
Bush met with al-Maliki in heavily fortified green zone at a palace once used by Saddam Hussein. It now serves temporarily as the U.S. Embassy.

"Good to see you," exclaimed al-Maliki, who didn't know Bush was in Baghdad until five minutes before they met.

"Thanks for having me," Bush responded. They smiled broadly and gave each other a two-handed handshake in the high-domed marble room.
