well, that answers that

Barack slaps down the Iraq "flip flop" bs in the New York Times, reiterating his commitment to withdrawal over 16 months.

I still would like to hear more about this "residual force" that he proposes to keep in Iraq. 1 brigade? 3 brigades? 100 military trainers and a platoon of Navy Seals? This is not a trivial distinction.

Nevertheless, consider the possibility: if Obama is elected, there is a chance that we could be mostly out of Iraq by this time in 2010. Imagine.
