112. This needs to be the sound bite for the day
Especially "Iraq's is a dangerous place".

Elaine: What kind of signal does it send to the Iraqi people that your admin. told the government only 5 minutes before your arrival.

President: It's a security concern because I'm a high value target for some. American people have to know that I take precautions somewhere. I won't put our goverment at risk. A lot of people didn't know about it. Half my cabinet didn't know about it. Iraq's is a dangerous place and if there was ample notification that I was coming it would have given someone a chance to plan and we don't want to take that risk. The PM was happy to see me and I was happy to see him, but you should expect a president to take precautions in the US. I take precautions in the US.
