Closing Argument: Mission – Finally – Accomplished?

Aug 18, 2010 11:44pm

The 4th Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, left Iraq today.

That is significant because it was officially designated as the last U.S. combat brigade to be pulled out of the country.

But this doesn't mean the military has completely withdrawn.

About 50,000 U.S. troops will remain — reconfigured and rebranded "advise and assist brigades." 

Full withdrawal is slated for the end of next year.  

So tonight we ask you: Do you think that Iraq will be ready for a full combat troop pull-out?
