Kyra Phillips from Iraq:

For [Maliki] obviously, this is just another day in Baghdad, something that happens in Iraq every day. You feel and the mortar attacks, They happen all around this country. But obviously, in this situation, it startled the new Secretary- General, his first trip to Iraq, quite a reality check for him.

A reality check..hehe, indeedy....

SilentPatriot: Apparently Banki didn't get Laura Bush's memo about that one pesky bombing.
