Acting US Defense chief on unannounced trip to Baghdad
Acting US Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan landed unannounced in Baghdad on Tuesday after a direct flight from Kabul, Afghanistan. Shanahan sat down with Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi to discuss relocating to US bases in Iraq the American troops due for withdrawal from Syria. DEBKAfile: The defense secretary also acted to deactivate Tehran’s unrelenting pressure on the Iraqi government to demand that Washington pull US troops out of that country too.
