Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Saturday that the Iraqi army and police
are capable of keeping security in the country when American troops leave "any
time they want," though he acknowledged the forces need further weapons and
One of the Prime Minister's top assistants, Hassan al-Suneid, said "the U.S. was treating Iraq like "an experiment in an American laboratory." He sharply criticised the U.S. military, saying it was committing human rights violations, embarassing the Iraqi government with its tactics and cooperating with "gangs of killers" in its campaign against al-Qaida in Iraq."
So, now that the Iraqis' can "Stand Up", will Joe work to let our troops "Stand Down" as promised???
What was I thinking.
Joe "DO NOTHING" Knollenberg won't do anything.
