The Iraq War ends in three weeks?

CNSNews reports,

The White House reiterated Wednesday that the plan to end the U.S. combat mission in Iraq in three weeks’ time is “on target.” The confirmation came despite recent setbacks in the country, including ongoing violence, a five-month delay in forming a new government, and reports of al-Qaeda trying to bribe disaffected Sunni militia to change sides. In a startling admission Wednesday, Iraq’s top military commander said the army will need U.S. military support until 2020 – nine years longer than stipulated in Washington’s current withdrawal plans.

That sounds a lot like declaring, “Mission Accomplished,” but without the stupid aircraft carrier photo op.

    Well, an end to stupid aircraft carrier photo ops is the change I was hoping for. It is an improvement.

    Well, an end to stupid aircraft carrier photo ops wasn’t exactly the change I was hoping for, but it is an improvement.

    No, it doesn’t. Withdrawing troops and leaving mostly support troops sounds quite different.

    Don’t worry, I’m sure Obama has a team working on another stupid photo op to replace it.
