From the pool report. Note the elaborate security precautions.
Vice President Biden is in Baghdad.
AF2, which for today is a C-17, was wheels down at 12:43 am local time. (Baghdad is 8 hours ahead of Eastern time.)
Earlier in Islamabad, VPOTUS’s motorcade arrived at Pakistan Air Force Base shortly after 8 pm local time.
One of VPOTUS’s limos pulled up to the traditional blue-and-white AF2 on the tarmac, positioned at the foot of the stairs, which were covered. The other continued on to a C-17 parked mostly out of view to anyone looking at the blue and white AF2. When pool boarded the C-17, VPOTUS was already on board in a steel, trailer-like cabin set up in the middle of the aircraft.
At 8:20 pm the C-17 was wheels up en route to Baghdad.
