Baghdad-bound, with no escorts: "Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) had never traveled abroad until he won a seat in Congress more than two decades ago. Today, along with Rep. Chris Shays (R-Conn.), Wolf is among Congress’s most adventurous travelers."

"Instead of flying into Kuwait on military aircraft and touring Iraq under military escort, Wolf and Shays flew into the turbulent U.S.-occupied, cold and damp country aboard a small prop plane chartered by a nongovernmental organization."

"Wolf said Monday in a phone interview that he wanted to see the country without official trappings because he had voted to send American service members to war and a young Marines Corps corporal from his district had been killed in April." Frank Wolf represents me in Congress as well.

"Majority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and a group including Reps. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), Deborah Pryce (R-Ohio), Dave Camp (R-Mich.) and Katherine Harris (R-Fla.) returned from a trip to Argentina, Chile and Peru where they discussed trade, terrorism and drugs with government officials and executives."
