During the July 18 edition of ABC's Good Morning America, anchor Robin Roberts falsely claimed that Sen. Barack Obama's planned visit to Iraq and Afghanistan was “his first trip to the war zones.” In fact, Obama has made a previous visit to Iraq as part of a January 2006 Middle East trip that also included stops in Israel and Jordan.
From the July 18 edition of ABC's Good Morning America:
ROBERTS: This morning, overseas mission. Barack Obama, set to make a high-profile tour abroad, his first trip to the war zones. Can he convince voters, and the world, that he's stronger on national security than John McCain?
