    So John Boehner gave his own speach commemorating the end of the combat mission in Iraq. whilst doing so he ripped on opponents of the surge, for "fighting tooth and nail" against it and now taking credit for its successes. He has a point. However, also throughout his speach he praises the new "change in mission" i.e. the draw down and change of focus in Iraq, despite the fact that he and most other Republicans notably John McCain very much opposed and spoke out against the actions now being taken. So politics as usual.

    It's funny because even if McCain were President, we would have had to withdraw most of our troops by now anyways. Bush and al-Maliki made a deal that required most troops withdraw by now and the remaining withdraw by the end of next year. I wonder what Boehner would have said then.

    According to Reuters, a federal judge has reinstated the case against Blackwater in Iraq. The case stemmed from charges against five Blackwater employees who killed 14 iraqi civilians in 2007.
