What's Wrong With This Picture?

What does it say about the state of world affairs that when high-ranking U.S. officials visit Iraq they wear flak jackets, there is no advance notice and the trips are rushed and cloaked in secrecy, whereas when Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad drops by as he did today his trip and itinerary are announced well in advance and he is greeted with pomp and ceremony?

I guess it tells you that the truly dangerous individuals in Iraq -- the Al Qaeda supporters, the Sadr thugs, the criminals, etc. -- are all supporters of Iran. Perhaps Iran has been doing them favors. Is that possible?
