...that the United States military personnel are now leaving Iraq was the lead story this morning.  As they were going back the way they came through Kuwait another story was hidden in the midst of the hoopla.  An American soldier was killed outside of Baghdad this morning.  I think the pullout is a photo opportunity rather than the real thing.  We are going to be leaving many troops in Iraq under the guise of training the Iraqi army and police.  Amazing.  That is what we have been doing for the past seven years and apparently we were not successful.  World War II ended 65 years ago and we still have troops stationed in Germany and Japan.  Looks like we will be in Iraq for a long time too.
