Obama reaffirms Iraq drawdown

U.S. military soldiersPresident Obama says the 7-year-old Iraq war soon will be shifting from a military to an diplomatic mission as U.S. troops are drawn down.  Political science Professor Graham Wilson, author of “Only in America? American Politics in comparative Perspective,” says Americans seem weary of the war and ready go see U.S. military engagement end.

“From indicators, such as failures in electricity supply and the inability of Iraqis to form a government following the last elections there, it’s clear that this isn’t ‘Mission Accomplished.’  But we’ve tacitly agreed it’s time to go.  I don’t think there will be much national joy as this war winds down.”
