ITINERARY

Obama Visits Baghdad

After wrapping up eight days in Europe, President Obama boarded Air Force One this morning in Turkey for his scheduled return flight back to the states. Instead, in an unscheduled move, the plane was diverted to Baghdad for Obama's first visit to Iraq as president. Obama touched down just hours after a car bomb blew up in a Shitte area of the city. Few details are known about his trip yet, but he is set to spend the day at Camp Victory, where he will address troops and award medals. Since he is unable to visit the Green Zone because of bad weather, Obama will speak to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and President Jalal Talibani via phone.
