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.

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.

The Iraqi government have said that it will hold a summit in a week's time to decide whether to ask US troops to stay on longer than plannned. The US had promised a pull-out deadline for 2011. 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.

VP Debate - Iraq: What is your exit strategy strategy for...
http://www.c-spanarchives.org/library/vidLink.php?b=1222997963&e=1222998317&n=002 MS. IFILL: You both have sons who are in Iraq or on their way to Iraq. You, Governor Palin, have said that you would like to see a real clear plan for an exit strategy. What should that be, governor? GOV. PALIN: I am very thankful that we do have a good plan. And the surge and the counterinsurgency strategy in Iraq that has proven to work, I am thankful that that is part of the plan implemented under a great American hero, General Petraeus, and pushed hard by another great American, Senator John McCain. I know that the other ticket opposed this surge, in fact, even opposed funding for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Barack Obama voted against funding troops there after promising that he would not do so. And Senator Biden, I respected you when you called him out on that. You said that his vote was political and you said it would cost lives. And Barack Obama at first said he would not do that. He turned around under political pressure and he voted against funding the troops. We do have a plan for withdrawal. We don't need early -- early withdrawal out of Iraq. We cannot afford to lose there or we're going to be no better off in the war in Afghanistan, either. We have got to win in Iraq. And with the surge that has worked, we're now down to pre-surge numbers in Iraq. That's where we can be. We can start putting more troops in Afghanistan as we also work with our NATO allies who are there strengthening us. And we need to grow our military. We cannot afford to lose against al Qaeda and the Shi'a extremists who are still there, still fighting us. But we're getting closer

In fact, any such endeavour is a test of wills and there are no guarantees." 5. Wide of committee room 6.

Wide of Senate Armed Services Committee 8.

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.

(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.

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.
