President Bush makes a surprise visit to the Iraqi capital to address 600 U.S. troops and eat a Thanksgiving meal. The president spends just over two hours on the ground at Baghdad's airport, where he gets rousing applause and standing ovations from the soldiers. NPR's Ivan Watson reports from Baghdad.
