President Obama has made an unannounced stop in Baghdad. The secrecy, not to mention a car bomb that exploded in Baghdad only hours before Obama arrived, indicates that Iraq still has a long way to go.
Before the president arrived, the military shut down Baghdad International Airport and cleared roads into the city. While in Baghdad, Obama will talk with US troops and Iraq leaders.
According to the White House spokesman, after spending time in neighboring Turkey, Obama concluded that the Americans troops in Iraq were equally deserving of his attention and appreciation.
