President Obama: All U.S. troops to leave Iraq

He ain't playing:
The Obama administration has decided to withdraw all U.S. forces from Iraq by the end of the year after failing to reach an agreement with the Iraqi government that would have left several thousand troops there for special operations and training.

President Obama and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki spoke Friday morning to cement that agreement in a scheduled telephone call, according to people familiar with the agreement who spoke on the condition of anonymity. White House officials have yet to disclose the contents of the call, but Obama is scheduled to deliver a statement at 12:45 p.m. on the agreement.

Hey, he's making good on it that's all I care about. After everything's said and done, it takes a Democrat to get us out of Iraq.

Like he said: "After a decade of war the nation that we need to build and the nation that we will build is our own."
