    On November 17, 2008, US and Iraqi officials signed a Security Agreement, often referred to as a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA), stating that "All the United States Forces shall withdraw from all Iraqi territory no later than December 31, 2011." The agreement also called for all U.S. combat forces to withdraw from Iraqi cities "no later than June 30, 2009."

    Bush signed SOFA, which "lays out a framework for the withdrawal of American forces in Iraq."

    Bush On Bin Laden: ‘I Really Just Don’t Spend That Much Time On Him’


    In 2006, conservative Weekly Standard editor Fred Barnes told Hannity’s Fox News that in a recent meeting with Bush, the president had told him “bin Laden doesn’t fit with the administration’s strategy for combating terrorism.” Barnes said Bush told him that capturing bin Laden is “not a top priority use of American resources.”

    Truth Revolt:

    I know some in Washington would like us to start leaving Iraq now. To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States. It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al Qaeda. It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. It would mean we’d allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan. It would mean increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous. - GWB 2007

    Nobody Predicted What Would Happen in Iraq...Except This Guy | Truth Revolt
    President didn't know there were different sects of Muslim's in Iraq that have been fighting each other for 1000 years. The only way you'll ever get peace in Iraq is to have them share the responsibilities. Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki wasn't willing to do do that and that's we have this flareup today.

After the biggest series of demonstrations, on February 15, 2003, New York Times writer Patrick Tyler claimed that they showed that there were two superpowers on the planet, the United States and worldwide public opinion.


    Europe saw the biggest mobilization of protesters, including a rally of three million people in Rome, which is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest ever anti-war rally

    New York

    300 buses and four special trains brought protesters in from across the country. 100,000 protesters (BBC estimate) took part in a rally near the UN building

    As people tried to reach the rally area they ended up constituting an unplanned march, stretching twenty blocks down First Avenue and overflowing onto Second and Third Avenue. In total estimates range from been 300,000 to 400,000 protesters (WSWS estimate)

    At a demonstration in Los Angeles, California, 50,000 (WSWS estimate) to 60,000 (GLW estimate) protesters (CNN said "thousands") marched down Hollywood Boulevard filling it for four blocks.


    According to the French academic Dominique Reynié, between January 3 and April 12, 2003, 36 million people across the globe took part in almost 3,000 protests against the Iraq war

    Sunday February 16. The BBC estimated the crowd size to be 150,000 people, while protest organisers and police agreed that the crowd count was 200,000 people.

    the reason is Obama is not trusted.. and should never be.. our allies know Obama doesnt have their back.. look at Syria?.. look at the Crimea.

    GWBs word meant something and leaders could hang their hat on that..

    You'll have to provide some photographic proof on that claim and provide proof with names that they were "qualified and smart."
