Let's Go Home Now

BAGHDAD, July 14 -- Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Saturday that the Iraqi military and police are capable of maintaining security "any time" the Americans want to leave the country. more

Well, this is good news. President Bush keeps saying we will leave Iraq as soon as the Iraqis are ready to defend themselves. That time now seems to be here, according to their own leader. So how fast can we get the troops back home?

Subsequent to the above quote, an Iraqi spokesman said the Prime Minister had been "misunderstood." Apparently Mr. al-Maliki needs additional training in how to speak from both sides of his mouth while revealing nothing consequential. Hmm, I wonder who could teach him how to do that?

Meanwhile, it seems that some of the Americans in question are more than ready to leave Iraq to the Iraqis.
