Back in Iraq

President Bush during a surprise visit to Bagdhad today celebrating the recently-signed SOFA agreement, five years and one day after the capture of Saddam Hussein. Video from Greyhawk.

I'm looking forward of seeing some photos of the CINC with the troops!

Here we go.

President George W. Bush reaches to shake as many hands as possible as he meets with U.S. military and diplomatic personnel Sunday, Dec, 14, 2008, at the Al Faw Palace-Camp Victory in Baghdad. White House photo by Eric Draper.

Another photo and the transcript of the President's remarks to the troops at Blackfive.

THE PRESIDENT: Over the past five years, you have shown the world some unmistakable truths:

You have shown that when America is tested, we rise to meet the test.

You have shown that the desire for freedom is more powerful than the intimidation of terrorists.

You have shown that there is no task too difficult for the United States military.


Gateway Pundit has video.

...and here in Afghanistan.
