Troops Out of Iraq in 18 Months

Marc Ambinder writes that the AP is reporting that President Obama is going to announce he is going to be bringing troops out of Iraq in 18 months.

President Obama plans to announce later this week that he will order all U.S. combat troops out of Iraq by August 2010, roughly three months later than the timetable he proposed during the campaign, but, come to think of it, not all that different. A residual force of between 30,000 to 50,000 would remain in the country indefinitely.
