US involvement in Iraq to end, US troops home by holidays

The misguided action in Iraq, at least the official involvement of the US military in it, is coming to a close according to a statement issued by President Obama from the White House press room.  The President said in part:

As a candidate for President I pledged to bring the war in Iraq to a responsible end … after taking office I announced a new strategy [to remove US troops] . Today I can report after nearly nine years, America’s war in Iraq will be over.” … “The troops will be home by the holidays.”
