Bush's Visit To Iraqi PM: Thank You Or Intervention?

President Bush slipped out and headed to Iraq again, today. But as expected, the left has pretty much downplayed it.

Bush said he wanted to speak to the Iraqi PM and thank him for his support, and his efforts in building a stable democratic republic. But what do you want to bet that the subject of Maliki's recent remarks about U.S. troops committing daily atrocities came up? Do you think that maybe this was mainly an intervention to those remarks, as I described in this post?

He is good at surprise visits. Once to Iraq with Rice.

Also, just before his visit to India, he did it in Afghanistan. The media wondered why the President did not go to Taj Mahal on this trip.

Rice and Straw did it in Iraq.

This is the fourth time. The coalition killed Zarqawi. Good occasion?

Shah,

Anytime someone like Zarqawi is neutralized is a good occasion for just about anything. ;)
