First he got Osama, then El Queda's #2, then Gaddafi and now this.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Friday declared an end to the Iraq war, one of the longest and most divisive conflicts in U.S. history, announcing that all U.S. troops would be withdrawn from the country by year's end.

..The president made the announcement at a White House briefing following a private video conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

“As promised the rest of our troops in Iraq will come home by the end of the year. After nearly nine years, America's war in Iraq will be over,” Obama said.

"Today I can say that troops in Iraq will be home for the holidays," Obama said.

More than 4,400 American military members have been killed, and another 2,000 wounded since the U.S. invaded Iraq in March 2003.

Obama is the man! He has dominated on foreign policy, now we just need a small boost to the economy.

Good lets see him bring the troops home and put 850 Billion dollars back into the economy. Course there is the Report from the IG on how much costs have increased two and 3 fold under Obama's Administration and all thru the SOS Dept. Sure hope they look into all those NFP's and NGO's. To discover why these costs have gone up under Clinton and Obama.

Yes, I'm happiest about the troops coming home but for sure the savings will be huge. That's going to help cut down on expenses, now we need the rest of the government to follow that lead.
