Doing a GW he has snuck in to the country, and maybe already on the way out. Visited with and thanked UK troops there.

Blair Makes Surprise Visit to Troops in Iraq

Sunday, January 04, 2004

BASRA, Iraq  — British Prime Minister Tony Blair (search), the chief U.S. ally in the war to oust Saddam Hussein, made a surprise visit to southern Iraq on Sunday to thank British troops for their part in the war.

Blair, whose political fortunes have wavered due to his backing of the war, flew into Iraq's second-largest city by military aircraft from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik (search), where he was on vacation with his family.

During the daylong visit, he was scheduled to meet military commanders and give a speech to some of the 10,000 British troops stationed in and around Basra.

Wait a minute, Tony Blair just flew out of the same airport that French 737 mysteriously crashed from!
