President Obama's speech on the with drawl of troops from Iraq. Of course he is getting all kinds of push back from everywhere on this. His time line is off. He is leaving too many troops, he is not leaving enough. They will be there too long, not long enough.
Whatever... He said from what I remember, and I am not going to look it up.. that he would bring the troops home with as much care and diligence as there was recklessness going in. He also said all along that it would be 16 months depending on conditions and the commanders and boots on the ground.
Anyway.. here is his speech..
It was an awesome speech and it seemed to be well received by the Marines who were there.
