From the St. Cloud Times:

The latest batch of congressional warriors being ferried to the carefully protected Iraq Green Zone includes our Michele Bachmann.
A few hours after arrival, she indicated seeing improvements in security in Iraq ("Bachmann says she has seen progress in Iraq," Dec. 23 St. Cloud Times.)
She noted more trust of our troops by the Iraqi people, a remarkable feat by her from within the fortified walls of the Green Zone, whose Iraqis are mainly coalition employees.
She also commented on improvements in "hospitals and elementary schools" and concluded with a positive evaluation of the services from Iraq's electric power grids. All these things represented "incredible developments" since her last visit to the Green Zone in July.
The 6th Congressional District is certainly blessed to have a representative with the amazing ability to grasp so much about so large an area in so short a time. She was apparently unfazed by complex issues that involve so many people in Iraq. More remarkable, the issues that inhabit an area the size of California.
