EXCERPTS ON IRAQ:

dedicate more resources to the fight against the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan

Military experts believe we can safely redeploy combat brigades from Iraq at a pace of 1 to 2 brigades a month -- which would remove all of them in 16 months. That would be the summer of 2010 -- more than 7 years after the war began.

Under the Obama-Biden plan, a residual force will remain in Iraq and in the region to conduct targeted counter-terrorism missions against al Qaeda in Iraq and protect American diplomatic and civilian personnel. They will not build permanent bases in Iraq, but will continue efforts to train and support the Iraqi security forces as long as Iraqi leaders move toward political reconciliation and away from sectarianism.

Obama and Biden believe it is vital that a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) be reached so our troops have the legal protections and immunities they need. Any SOFA should be subject to Congressional review to ensure it has bipartisan support here at home.

In other words, Obama endorses SOFA!
Our troops nor any mercenary troops (paid by our taxes) should stay in Iraq, for any reason. There is no way that conflict could be avoided by our troops while supposedly protecting American diplomats and civilan personnel-AND CONDUCTING TARGET COUNTER TERRORISM MISSIONS! I think we and the Iraqi government is being mislead by this. Does no one else see this? Too bad, I thought Obama was for change.
