Iraq: Open to US Troops Leaving Early


Thanks to the peaceful transfer of power that happened this week, international players who have been working with President Bush for years may find their relationships with the US changing. As a result, Iraq is preparing security plans just in case President Obama decides to remove all American forces, not just combat troops, well before the 2011 deadline.

Even if it's Plan B, Iraq believes it's prepared to assume all security responsibilities. Speaking up a bit, now that President Bush is back in Texas, Iraq's government said it would be willing to have the US withdraw all troops before the designated date. The message from the Prime Minister's spokesman came yesterday before President Obama met with senior military commanders to discuss his administration's next move.

Do you think it's time for US troops to leave Iraq?
