Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and two colleagues made an unannounced visit to Baghdad on Saturday, meeting with Prime Minister Iyad Allawi. During two days in the region, they also met with civilian authorities, military commanders and troops.

In a telephone interview, the senator said he was impressed with Dr. Allawi, a fellow physician-turned-political figure, and found him determined to bring "full-blown democracy" to Iraq.
