Bush to meet Iraqi Prime MInister -- In Jordan, he's not going to Baghdad this time

No "surprise visit" to Baghdad next week. Bush isn't even going to the country he invaded. He's meeting in a safe place:

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush will meet Iraqi Prime inister
Nuri al-Maliki in Jordan next week with grim new statistics showing record numbers of Iraqis were killed last month and many more fled the country. …

The meeting between Bush and Maliki in the Jordanian capital Amman, a much safer venue than Baghdad, will follow a weekend visit to Iran by Iraqi President Jalal Talabani and this week's landmark visit to Iraq by Syria's foreign minister.
Funny how Bush is rushing over to meet al-Maliki now that Iran and Syria are becoming Iraq's new best friends.

3,709 civilians killed in October according to UN calculations. Bush and the GOP are disgracefully casual with the mounting deaths of innocent Iraqis and still do not seem to appreciate the mess that they created.
