Bush helped serve a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Bush made a surprise visit to Baghdad to mark America’s Thanksgiving holiday. The event was kept secret until Mr Bush was in the Iraqi capital because of security concerns. Had word of the trip leaked it would have been cancelled.
Mr Bush spent two hours having dinner with about 600 stunned US troops at Baghdad airport before leaving Iraq.No one had been told in advance that Mr Bush was coming on the visit, the first to Iraq by a US president.
"I was just looking for a warm meal somewhere,"said Mr. Bush,
"Thanks for inviting me to dinner."
