Iraq Withdrawal in 2010?

President Obama pledged last night to end the war in Iraq, and news is leaking already about his plan to do so: According to his aides, Obama is nearing decision on a plan that would withdraw American combat forces from Iraq by August 2010. The plan would leave between 30,000 and 50,000 “residual forces” in Iraq to train Iraqi security forces and protect U.S. interests. An announcement could come as early as later this week.
