    Isn’t the natural conclusion that he is because of security reasons? He is “popping-up” in countries containing many individuals who would love to kill him given the opportunity. He might make unnannouced visits to other, more friendly countries but I suspect that is rare. As far as I know, every visit by him and high ranking cabinent members to Iraq or Afghanistan is unannounced.

    Or, were you hoping for an explanation that put Bush in a bad light?

    The rest of that question is how many Presidents and high ranking officials have routinely visited war zones?

    I suspect Roosevelt’s big war huddles were unannounced; e.g. the mid-Atlantic meeting with Churchill, Casablanca, Tehran, and Yalta.
