United States presidential election, 2008: Obama on Iraq withdrawal


Barack Obama said in CNN his first act as president would be to ask his Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS-US Army) to put together a plan to “begin withdrawing” from Iraq.

He added that the withdrawal would in all likelihood be “messy” and that “people who say we’ll just pull them out are irresponsible.”

Obama will present his plan to combat terrorism in a speech tomorrow in Washington.
