God help the folks at our embassy and consulates as well as the NGOs. The State Department will be responsible for security.

I’m in support of this if the reason is Iraq’s refusal to give our troops immunity.

Sorry—I couldn’t get the entire title in the post because of character restrictions.

Can you possibly change to “President Obama Will Announce Today Complete Drawdown of US Troops in Iraq”?

Thanks.

Won’t it be harder to collect all that oil and money that’s owed us, if we’re not there?

If this doesn’t give Obama a bump in the polls, nothing will.

Poll numbers dropping, have to do something. Khadafi won't help his numbers much, if at all. He got almost no bump from offing Bin Laden.

I agree. Add to that an agreement to recoup money to defray the expense of the war via oil pricing incentives. Freedom isn't free.

Keep in mind this had to be leaked by Obama’s inner circle (a trial balloon?), if the call happened at 11:30 am and a reporter has the information posted to the internet by 12:30 pm. The government leaks like crazy, but it usually does leak this quickly.

Yes, according to the African Muslim Obama destroy America plan, Iraq is to become part of Iran the moment the USA military departs. Yes, the Obama plan to turn the entire Middle East into a radical Muslim bastion of America hate is right on schedule!!! And....just as African Muslim Obama wishes, Israel will be isolated, surrounded by legions of Obama’s “Muslim Brotherhood” brethren!!! And....African Black Christians, watch your back. Obama has you in his sights!!!
