Rumsfeld surprises troops in Iraq

 Q:   Ask a Question about Rumsfeld surprises troops in Iraq       
The United States Defense Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, surprised the American troops in Iraq by making an unprecedented visit there. Mr. Rumsfeld told the troops that insurgency in Iraq could still be taken under control.

Mr. Rumsfeld though heavily criticized for using a printer rather than personally hand written to sign condolence letters to the relatives of dead soldiers, visited forces wounded in a suicide attack in Mosul.

Military officials said that 22 people died when a man who was dressed in Iraqi military uniform, entered a dining hall where American troops were having lunch and blew him up. Admitting to the point that the conflict in Iraq was at a critical point, Mr. Rumsfeld told the soldiers that he was confident of curbing the insurgency and stabilizing the country.

Mr. Rumsfeld had landed before the dawn and headed for Medic station where many of the victims suffering due to bomb attack were treated after lunchtime attack on a mess tent. As Mr. Rumsfeld was visiting Iraq, it came out that senior American intelligence officials had concluded that the terrorist had been able to operate at their will in the north of the country Iraq.

According to a report series of errors and missed opportunities in intelligence collections, recruitment and operational matters on the behalf of allied forces. The assessment was compiled after most of Mosul's police force deserted or defected certain parts of the city briefly which fell to insurgents on later stage.

Mr. Rumsfeld said in an interview that he had been planning to visit American troops in Iraq long before the deadly bomb attack in Mosul. Mr. Rumsfeld met the commander of the 1st Infantry Division, General John Batiste, in the city of TIkrit. Tikrit is also the home town of Saddam Hussain. Mr. Rumsfeld was there briefed on local preparations for national elections.

The blast in Mosul was the deadliest single and far most threatening attack on a US base in Iraq. Fourteen members of the US services were among the dead. Mr. Rumsfeld said that he deeply mourned for the dead soldiers and would strengthen the security alerts in the Gulf.
