The United States' top two foreign policy officials flew unexpectedly into Iraq separately Wednesday in a strong show of support for the country's emerging new government. US Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld arrived unannounced on Wednesday for a daylong series of meetings with senior US commanders and the newly selected Iraqi leaders. US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice flew into Baghdad from Turkey a few hours later to shore up Washington's show of support for the newly emerging Iraqi government. "We just want to make sure there are no seams between what we're doing politically and what we're doing militarily," Rice told reporters on her plane en route to Iraq. "Secretary Rumsfeld and I are going to be there together because a lot of the work that has to be done is at that juncture between political and military."
