Rice Make Surprise Visit to Iraq

"Before visiting the capital, Rice's first stop in this war-weary country was in the town of Salahuddin, in Kurdish northern Iraq. There she urged patience for the fragile new government and said Iraqis have made remarkable political progress that can overcome a recent surge of violence.

"Rice flew immediately to the mountain stronghold of Kurdish Democratic Party leader Massoud Barzani. She rode in a military helicopter under extremely heavy security.

The one-day trip was Rice's first visit to Iraq as the nation's top diplomat.

Rice was a chief architect of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq as White House national security adviser during President Bush's first term and she accompanied Bush on his own surprise visit to Iraq on Thanksgiving Day 2003."
