Rumsfeld Visits Iraqi Leaders

I see that Rumsfeld recently visited the Iraqi leaders.

I'm glad he made the trip, it's important for our high ranking officials to share a little face time with the elected officials in Iraq. But I can't help but be reminded of another trip Rumsfeld made to Iraq to talk to the Iraqi leaders. You know, that one where he met Saddam Hussein to normalize US/Iraqi relationships during the Iran-Iraq war, the one where Saddam used chemical weapons. Actually, it was two trips, one an 1983 and another the following year.

Hopefully, the result of this trip will have a happier ending than the result of that other one. I'm an optimist, I'm sure it will.
