Vice President Dick Cheney Makes a Surprise Visit to Iraq

You go Mr. VP!!!
Iraq: Sunday December 18, 2005
Under heavy security, Vice President Dick Cheney was found touring the country today. His visit was so shrouded in secrecy that the Iraq's prime minister even said he was surprised when he showed up for a meeting with the U.S. ambassador only to see the Vice President waiting to greet him instead.

“...As the ISF gains strength and experience and as the political process advances, we'll be able to decrease troop levels without losing our capacity to defeat the terrorists. And on behalf of the President, I assure you, any decisions about troop levels will be driven by the conditions on the ground and the judgment of our commanders, not by artificial timelines set by politicians in Washington, D.C.”
