Yesterday at about 5:25PM I saw a gorgeous C-17 taking off from O'Hare....does anyone know any details about this?...is this airport dual use?

There is a TFR out for Thursday afternoon over Chicago, carrying the standard Secret Service verbiage. Presumably a visit from POTUS, and the C-17 was bringing in equipment (limos, etc) for the visit.

Rahm Emanuel's moving truck.  The military can use most any airport it wants too. I can't think of any restrictions in the US that prohibit military flights.

There use to be an Illinois Air National Guard squadron that had KC-135's based at ORD. I'm not sure whether they're still there, but I assume so?

No, they moved to Scott AFB about 10 years ago.
