It's been 2 years since a high ranking member of this administration has visited, and you saturate this as some sort of bastion of light carried unto this country upon Cheney's breast...

You might want to reconsider making positive statements in support of this administration least you appear as delusional as other supporters.

Is there any other way Cheney could take Iraq other than surprise?
It cracks me up all day long they say he took them by surprise. Could he announce his trip?
If everything is going so wonderfully, as i said in another post, he should be able to jump out of an airplane and land in the middle of Bagdhad with his parachute!

I think the timing is really distasteful. I know they say coincidence but couldn't they have waited a few more weeks, the Iraqi people just had their first elections and should be able to rejoice in this as something for THEM to be proud of.
After arriving in Baghdad amid great secrecy on Sunday morning, Mr. Cheney hopscotched around Iraq under intense security for nine hours. He got a briefing from the senior American officials in Baghdad, met with Iraq's leaders, got a firsthand look at newly trained Iraqi forces and spoke to United States military personnel.

How has Cheney taken "Iraq by surprise"?
I guess the old police adage is true right up to the highest echelons of power, criminals always return to the scene of the crime
