Senator googles Iraq
Senator Bill Nelson led a Congressional delegation to Iraq last week, his third visit to the country. And this time, you can watch exactly where he went -- thanks to a staffer on the trip with a simple digital video camera, combined with a new tool from Google Maps and Google Earth.
Nelson's office told CNN the aim is to allow visitors to their Web site to virtually travel alongside with the senator as he met with Nebraska troops and with Iraqi leaders.
