What short, selective memories some people have. There was alot of Iraqi public outrage over civilian casualties by both soldiers and us contractors alike. Wikileaks releasing the video of the 2 apache helecopter killing more civilians in april 2010 just threw gasoline on that fire. These situations amongst others were what was fueling alot of the public outrage at the US troops and contractors and since the Iraqi parliment refused to extend US personnell immunity from the Iraqi legal system (political suicide) there was no way to get a SOFA agreement approved. This had absolutely nothing to do with any failure of Obama's and everything to do with the public outrage regarding all the collateral damage that had occurred during the war.
