Obama makes surprise visit to Iraq

Following his visits to Europe and Turkey, President Obama made an unannounced stop in Iraq.

During the last few years of the Bush administration, officials said that the U.S. could not withdraw from Iraq until the Iraqi government was strong enough to run the country on its own.

Obama, continuing the same dialogue, said that now is the time for Iraq to take responsibility for itself. He thanked a crowd of troops for giving Iraq the opportunity to be a democratic nation.
