Obama, Iraqi Leader Visit Arlington Nat’l Cemetery

President Obama, Vice President Biden and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki made a joint visit to Arlington National Cemetery this afternoon.

Maliki and the president participated in a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns, to honor American troops killed in Iraq. The visit coincides with the planned exit of nearly all U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of this month.

Traffic was blocked in the area of the Memorial Bridge during the roughly 30 minute visit. Arlington County police assisted with the closures.
