Governor Dave is Bagdad bound

Liz Benjamin of the DN reported this early Sunday morning.
Gov. David Paterson's press office just revealed he has landed in Baghdad along with Reps. Anthony Weiner and Steve Israel on an unannounced Congressional delegation trip for a holiday visit with US troops.

The New York Democrats will share meals with service members, visit living quarters and tour American forward operating bases. They will also hold meetings with yet-undisclosed US and Iraqi officials.
