from a friend's blog:

> "Breaking News: President Obama has made an unscheduled stop in Baghdad."
> No, no, dear reporter: "unscheduled" does not mean the same thing as "we weren't about to tell YOU!" Not ever.
> This was planned out thoroughly in advance. You were just kept in the dark at all times. That's what you get for riding the press pool in Air Force One. Enjoy the ride.
