  •  IRAQ combat mission (0+ / 0-)

    the generals/pentagon were making noise about NOT ending the combat mission.  

    The combat mission ultimately ended.

    Petraus/Pentagon wanted to KEEP the surge forces in Afghanistan. Last year, Obama withdrew more of the surge forces than thought.  Obama bucked the pentagon.

    Obama said in september and MANY other occasions earlier this that all troops from Iraq will be out. period.  The deal with the iraqs was just backgroun pentagon/military industrial complex noise.
