Boozman Going To Iraq

LITTLE ROCK -- U.S. Rep. John Boozman left Monday for a trip to Iraq to visit Arkansas troops and talk with Iraqi cabinet members about the nation's elections.

Boozman, R-Ark. left early Monday with five other congressmen, including Louisiana's Charles Boustany Jr., R-Lafayette, to visit Iraq, Boozman's spokesman Patrick Creamer said. The trip's delegation included two other Republicans and two Democrats.

The trip, led by Rep. Tom Osborne, R-Neb., will focus on the impact of last week's parliamentary elections.

"That's going to be the major issue discussed," Creamer said. "He wanted to get a feel from the Iraqi officials about the progress that has been made in the country."

Boozman will be in Iraq until Friday and is expected to visit with Arkansas troops during his trip.

"He wants to make sure that our troops are getting what they need out there," Creamer said.

Details of his trip were not being released for security reasons, Creamer said. This week's trip is Boozman's fourth to Iraq since the war began in 2003, he said.

The other members on the trip include Reps. Gene Green, D-Texas; Adam Schiff, D-Calif. and Robert Ney, R-Ohio. (AP, 12/19/2005)
