Getting Out of Iraq - The Obama Plan: ASK THE EXPERT
http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2009/02/promised_withdrawal.html Lawrence J. Korb responds to President Obama's Iraq plan, whether it is likely to spur political action in Iraq, and whether we will be ready to leave in August 2010 in the latest installment of CAP's ASK THE EXPERT series. President Obama made a critical change in our nation’s foreign policy in Iraq, reaffirming his full commitment to the Status of Forces Agreement negotiated by the Bush administration late last year. Obama’s announced he will remove all U.S. combat troops from Iraq by August 31, 2010 and honor the 2011 SOFA deadline for a complete withdrawal of all U.S. forces. This shows he remains committed to the promise he made to the American people during his campaign—that he would finally act to end this needless, mindless, senseless war. During his campaign, Obama promised to remove U.S. combat troops within 16 months, leaving behind a residual force with limited responsibilities. His announcement today largely fulfills these pledges. While the 19-month deadline is an extension of his earlier estimate, it still offers a strong commitment to remove U.S. forces from the country. His plan will benefit both the United States and Iraq, moving both nations toward a new era of responsible engagement in the Middle East. By setting a deadline for withdrawing combat forces, Obama has sent an unmistakable message that the United States fully supports a sovereign Iraq and is serious about upholding the principles set out in the SOFA. That agreement promised that U.S. troops would leave Iraqi cities by June 30, 2009, and vacate the country by the end of 2011. Obama’s plan would see all combat troops out of Iraq well before this deadline, leaving only a residual transition force in place until the agreement runs out. By strengthening our commitment to leave, and setting an earlier deadline for the end of combat operations, Obama has also taken an essential step in building trust with the Iraqi government and peopl...

Obama's Iraq Problem: Change That Works For Him
Video Script: Obama: My assessment is that the surge has not worked. Obama: I would end this war, and I would have our troops out within 16 months. Obama: I will immediately begin to remove our troops. Murtha: I think the surge is working. Lieberman: The surge is working. Clinton: We've begun to change tactics in Iraq, and in some areas, particularly in Al Anbar Province, it's working. Gibbs: The security situation has improved, much as everybody admitted it would if we put more troops on the ground. Axelrod: I mean, he never disputed the fact that if you throw a surge of American soldiers in an area that you can make a difference. Obama: I am not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops in Iraq is gonna solve the sectarian violence there. In fact, I think it will do the reverse. Reporter: You did not refer to the 16 month timetable. Does that mean you can tell us today that you will not change the 16 month timetable? Obama: (smiles and breathes) Uh... I... (scratches head)

Obama confirms plan for US troop withdrawal from Iraq
http://timesofearth.com/Worldnews/?NT=0&nid=25655 Washington - U.S. President Barack Obama says the United States will end its combat mission in Iraq as scheduled. Mr. Obama had set an August 31 deadline for removing combat troops. There were 140,000 troops in Iraq when Mr. Obama first took office. After the drawdown, 50,000 troops will serve as a transitional force. Administration officials say August 31 will mark the end of Operation Iraqi Freedom launched by former President George W. Bush. The new mission will be called Operation New Dawn, where U.S. troops will focus on training Iraqi soldiers and performing counter-terrorism operations. Mr. Obama's comments are part of a speech he is scheduled to deliver to a group of disabled veterans in Atlanta, Georgia. Excerpts of the speech were released in advance. The president has set a goal of removing all U.S. troops in Iraq by the end of 2011. The leading Republican in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, has commended the president for "adopting" and "continuing" the policy to wind down the Iraq war as outlined by the Bush administration. In Iraq Monday, Iraqi officials say two civilians were killed when a roadside bomb exploded in southern Baghdad. The blast also wounded four people. In Fallujah, a bomb blew up a policeman's house. The officer and two others were killed, and seven people were wounded. ---------- Copyright 2010 THE TIMES OF EARTH All rights reserved.

Obama: Surge troops out of Afghanistan by 2012
Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Ten thousand US troops will leave Afghanistan this year and another 23,000 will go home by the end of 2012. That is according to the plan outlined by US President Barack Obama, after ten years of war and billions of dollars spent on the fight with the Taliban. Some in the military are warning hard-won gains will be lost, however, the president says that the "tide of war is receding" and, in an acknowledgment of domestic economic strains, that "it is time to focus on nation-building here at home".

Iraq says it may revise US pull-out plan

Ali al Dabbagh, an Iraqi government spokesman, told Al Jazeera that all political parties will have a say. "I think the decision is not up to others it is up to Iraqis. We do need the majority to decide which is good for Iraq, the interests of Iraq the interests of the people we do need to find out which is good for Iraq," he said. However, as Al Jazeera's Jane Arraf reports from Baghdad, many Iraqis already know they want US troops out.

Watch President Obama address the nation on the Islamic State Group
In a major reversal, President Barack Obama ordered the United States into a broad military campaign Wednesday night to "degrade and ultimately destroy" Islamic State militants in two volatile Middle East nations authorizing airstrikes inside Syria for the first time as well as an expansion of strikes in Iraq. The president added that the U.S. will send 475 more U.S. troops into Iraq to supplement an existing American military presence that is helping Iraqi security forces battle Islamic State militants and secure diplomatic facilities. Obama announced the additional forces Wednesday in a prime-time speech to the nation. The new troops would join more than 1,000 U.S. military personnel in Iraq and would be embedded with Iraqi security forces and help identify targets for U.S. military airstrikes against the extremist group. The U.S. already has more than 750 U.S. military personnel supporting diplomatic security at facilities in Baghdad and nearly 300 at joint operating centers in Baghdad and Irbil.

Army general comment on Iraq war plan before Senate committee
1. Wide of Senate Armed Services hearing room 2. Lieutenant General David Petraeus sitting down 3. Wide of Senate Armed Services Committee 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Lieutenant General David Petraeus, US Commander in Iraq Nominee: "None of this will be rapid. In fact, the way ahead will be neither quick nor easy and there undoubtedly will be tough days. We face a determined, adaptable, barbaric enemy. He will try to wait us out. In fact, any such endeavour is a test of wills and there are no guarantees." 5. Wide of committee room 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Lieutenant General David Petraeus, US Commander in Iraq Nominee: "The situation in Iraq is dire. The stakes are high. There are no easy choices. The way ahead will be very hard. Progress will require determination and difficult US and Iraqi actions, especially the latter, as ultimately the outcome will be determined by the Iraqis. But hard is not hopeless." 7. Wide of Senate Armed Services Committee 8. SOUNDBITE: (English) John McCain, US Republican Senator for Arizona: "Based on your knowledge of the Army and its state of readiness, how long do you believe the increased troop levels and op tempo can be sustained?" 9. SOUNDBITE: (English) Lieutenant General David Petraeus, US Commander in Iraq Nominee: "Sir my understanding is that there are contingency plans being developed to sustain the surge, the increased force levels, if that is required. Having said that, as I mentioned in my opening statement, I am keenly aware of the strain on our soldiers and Marines, in particular, and on our families, certainly the other members of the military who are in positions that have been deploying. And it is for that reason, as I mentioned, that I applaud the increase in our ground forces in particular." 10. Wide of Senate Armed Services Committee 11. Mid of Petraeus 12. SOUNDBITE: (English) Hillary Rodham Clinton, Democrat US Senator for New York: "You wrote the book, general, but the policy is not by the book. And you are being asked to square the circle, to find a military solution to a political crisis." 13. Wide of hearing 14. Generals Peter Schoomaker(screen left) and James Conway (screen right) 15. Wide of House Armed Services Committee 16. Conway and Schoomaker sitting before Committee 17. SOUNDBITE: (English) Representative Ike Skelton, House Armed Services Committee Chairman: "Are you comfortable with the level of readiness of the Marines that are within the United States today?" 18. SOUNDBITE: (English) General James Conway, United States Marine Corps Commandant: "We have examined other war plans and our capability to respond to those plans, and we see that we are lacking in some areas with our ability to do so." (Question Chairman Skelton: "Are we running a strategic risk if the Marines were called upon to fight elsewhere today?") "Sir, we feel that there is a risk. We feel like we would be able to respond with those forces that are not committed to Iraq or Afghanistan, that the response would be slower than we might like, would not have all of the equipment sets that ordinarily would be the case, and there certainly is risk associated with that." 19. House Armed Services Committee 20. Wide of generals sitting before committee STORYLINE: The Army general who would carry out US President George W Bush's new war plan urged a sceptical Congress and American public on Tuesday to be patient, but acknowledged "the situation in Iraq is dire."

In keeping with Barack Obama's presidential campaign promise, the US has withdrawn its troops from Iraq and by the end of 2012 US spending in Iraq will be just five per cent of what it was at its peak in 2008. In a special two-part series, Fault Lines travels across Iraq to take the pulse of a country and its people after nine years of foreign occupation and nation-building. Now that US troops have left, how are Iraqis overcoming the legacy of violence and toxic remains of the US-led occupation, and the sectarian war it ignited? Is the country on the brink of irreparable fragmentation? Correspondent Sebastian Walker first went to Baghdad in June 2003 and spent the next several years reporting un-embedded from Iraq. In the first part of this Fault Lines series, he returns and travels from Basra to Baghdad to find out what kind of future Iraqis are forging for themselves.
