Condi paid a surprise visit to both the sheep and the leaders of Iraq yesterday.

Earlier, the secretary arrived at a military airport and rode by
helicopter to a U.S. base near Mosul, flying over sheep grazing next to
the roofless shells of bombed-out buildings and houses.

Baa-Baa Boom!

Rice met behind closed doors in Baghdad with several prominent Sunni
Arab leaders, including tribalist leader and Vice President Ghazi

It is still unclear as to whether the sheep were included in the "closed door meeting."
