BAGHDAD IRAQ - While on a surprise visit to Iraq Condi Rice sat down with troops to have lunch and was handed a MRE by a troop sitting next to her. With a surprised look on her face, she inquired about what had happened to the lunch that she had brought with her from Washington D.C. which reportedly was specially prepared by the White House Chef consisting of smoked Salmon and scrambled Quayle eggs. The troops insisted that she join them for lunch.
After fumbling with the box which contained beef mac and an item which the troops called the four fingers of death she was assisted by Specialist Fred Balinger of New York who showed her how to eat the meal.
"Oh my god" Miss Rice exclaimed as she tore open the Beef Mac pack. Plastic spoon in hand, she scooped out the contents and raised the spoon to her mouth. With all the troops looking on she gave a nervous smile, and daintily placed the contents in her mouth and attempted to swallow the contents.
She gagged, then gulped the beef mac, and proceeded to vomit on the troop sitting next to her.
Quickly standing she apologized and then turned to the other troops and proceeded to once again vomit on another troop.
State department officials quickly whisked Miss Rice out a side exit and later issued a statement in which she apologized for the vomit incident and what they referred to as the "stomach flu" which caused it. One troop joked that he didn't know what her problem was that he'd had his fifth MRE and so far "none of them had an exit strategy".
