US and Iraq reach pullout agreement

So President Bush said a timetable for troop withdrawal would only embolden the enemy and put our troops at risk, except on the eve of the Democratic Convention, in which Barack Obama has made withdrawal one of his signature issues, it is announced that all US forces will be gone from Iraq in 2011.? “We think this is a very good agreement,” Secretary of State Condeleeza Rice said, adding that “the United States has gone very far” in accommodating Iraqi issues. She then noted that some obstacles remain, saying it would be an “excellent agreement when we finally have agreement.”? Oh.? Huh.? Still, you’ve got to wonder about the timing of this “agreement” especially since this President has been so against it for the past five years.? [Washington Post]
