New RNC Clock Highlights How Long Since Obama Visited Iraq

The Republican National Committee has launched a clock on its website to track just how long it's been since would-be Commander in Chief Barack Obama has been to Iraq. As of this writing, it's 871 days and counting.

RNC Chairman Robert M. "Mike" Duncan released this statement:

"Barack Obama has only visited Iraq once -and that was 871 days ago.

Why does Obama readily agree to one-on-one negotiations with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but decline one-on-one briefings in Baghdad with our military leaders?
