President Makes Surprise Visit to Iraq
By Michael D. Shear
ISTANBUL -- President Obama made a surprise visit to Iraq Tuesday afternoon, landing on Air Force One in Baghdad at 4:42 p.m. local time after concluding an eight-day overseas tour through Europe.
The unannounced visit to a war zone was a closely guarded secret that was kept from many of the president's staff and the press corps, which had been following him across the globe for the past week.
