Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made an unexpected visit to Iraq Friday morning. In her visit she urged Iraqis to bridge sectarian differences, venturing to a majority Sunni Arab region of the country to ask for cooperation in the coming election. Rice's trip, scheduled before Wednesday's suicide bombings in Jordan, includes a stop in Bahrain for meetings on development and democratic progress in the Middle East. She will also visit Saudi Arabia, Israel and the West Bank. Rice said she would talk to Jordanian leaders about whether to take a side trip to Jordan, saying she did not want to interfere with recovery efforts. She said street protests against the bombings by angry Jordanians show the terrorists' message does not resonate.
