Republican presidential rival John McCain came out recently and criticized Obama a great deal for failing to go visit Iraq recently.

The last time Obama was in Iraq was back in 2006.

Obama declined an invite from McCain for the two to go to Iraq together, calling it a “political stunt” according to the New York Times.

Obama was in Iraq back in January 2006 when he went there as part of a congressional delegation.

McCain and the entire Republican party have used this fact to go on the attack against Obama, launching an online clock to show the number of days since Obama last visited the country.
