After Apologizing For the Liberation of Iraq All Week… Obama Arrives in Baghdad
For the past week Barack Obama has traveled Europe attacking President Bush and apologizing for the liberation of Iraq from the brutal Saddam Hussein regime.
Just hours ago Obama landed in Baghdad for a surprise visit.
For some reason the media payed little attention to the thousands who protested Obama in Turkey.

U.S. President Barack Obama made an unannounced visit to Baghdad on Tuesday, marking a new chapter in his strategy to wind down the unpopular war in Iraq and shift the United States’ military focus to Afghanistan.
The White House said that Obama would meet U.S. commanders and troops, and speak to Iraqi leaders by telephone. He would call the Iraqi leaders because bad weather prevented helicopter travel to see them in person, the White House said.
To the media and liberals- It’s always about “winding down the unpopular war.”
It’s never about winning.
Although, Obama and the liberal media ignore the good news, the US is making incredible gains in Iraq.

The number of American troops killed in Iraq in March dropped to single figures for the first time since the war began in 2003. The US lost 9 soldiers in March, the lowest number of US deaths since the 2003 invasion.
You have to wonder what the soldiers currently serving in Iraq think of this visit?
UPDATE: KCMike adds this:
Maybe he’s there to change the name from Camp Victory to “Camp Apologize” or “Camp Retreat”???
Not that that would surprise us.
