Who Paid For Rummy's Secret Trek To Iraq, And What Was It For?

Believe it or not, some one thinks that Rummy needed to take a farewell tour of Iraq this weekend. The not so secret trek to Iraq, "leaked" to the press.

Wondering two things:

1- Did the American Taxpayers foot the bill for that trek?

2- What the hell was it for?

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Outgoing Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld made a secret farewell trip to Iraq, a senior Pentagon official confirmed on Saturday.

Rumsfeld's trip, first reported by ABC News, was his 13th unannounced visit to the country. It came one day after he gave a farewell address at the Pentagon and nine days before he is replaced by Robert Gates.

No other details of Rumsfeld's trip or whether he was still in Iraq were immediately available.

2- What the hell was it for?

I think that he's shopping for real estate--sort of 'Paraguayan style'.

Is it too much to hope that he's been drafted?
