Don't give Obama credit

Large headlines in today’s Star proclaim, “US will quit Iraq”. The size of the print was only about half that used when Mike Stoops was fired but that is another issue. Obama doesn’t deserve credit. He, Hillary and other top ranking officials have done everything they could to convince the leaders of Iraq that as many as 5000 troops should be allowed to stay after this year indefinitely. Iraq would not allow immunity and so he was forced to order bringing them home. The question remains on the size of armed contractors who will remain. To me it is just a sham to relieve concerns of those Americans like me who didn’t want to attack Iraq in the first place.
