    Well there you go, U.S secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld is tonight a guest of my very own city!

    Rumsfeld arrives in Adelaide
    November 17, 2005

     US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has arrived in Adelaide for ministerial talks between the US and Australian governments.
    Mr Rumsfeld and his delegation arrived at Adelaide Airport this morning amid tight security with a large motorcade bringing him into the centre of the city.

    His movements today remain a closely guarded secret although there is speculation that he will have lunch at a local winery.

    Mr Rumsfeld will attend the Australia-United States Ministerial Meeting, to be hosted by Defence Minister Robert Hill and Foreign Affairs Minister Alexander Downer.

    Deputy US Secretary of State Bob Zoellick will also take part.

    Police in Adelaide have thrown a tight security net around the conference venue and hotel where the guests will stay, with up to 500 officers involved.

    They said they're ready for anything, including protests and a potential terrorist attack.

    Yesterday, SA's assistant police commissioner described Mr Rumsfeld as one of the world's top terrorist targets.
