When is a Withdrawal Not a Withdrawal?
Published on October 31, 2011 by Sara Foss

I couldn't quite believe it when Obama announced that U.S. troops would withdraw from Iraq by the end of the year. It seemed too good to be true.

As I suspected, there was a little more to the story. According to news reports, the U.S. is planning to bolster its presence in the Middle East after the Iraq withdrawal is complete. Which comes as no surprise, I guess. But still. Was it too much to hope that we were really changing course?
