Rice trip to Iraq -- even her pilot did not know

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Secrecy for U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's visit to Iraq on Sunday was so tight even her pilot did not know his passenger's name until she got on board.

U.S. officials took extreme precautions to protect Rice from the Iraqi insurgency, putting her in a bulletproof vest and combat helmet at times, keeping many of her own colleagues in the dark and only telling Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari she was coming 48 hours before her arrival.
