On his campaign website, Obama promised he would "remove one to two combat brigades each month, and have all of our combat brigades out of Iraq within 16 months."

His commitment to bring combat troops home by May 20, 2010, and end the war gave him an edge among Democrats over candidate Hillary Clinton.

However, on Feb. 27, Obama declared, "Let me say this as plainly as I can: By Aug. 31, 2010, our combat mission in Iraq will end."

If Obama adheres to his plan, combat troops will return home months later than originally promised. The New York Times reports, Obama will withdraw only two of the 14 brigades before December.

As part of a "new era of American leadership," he also said he would leave behind a residual force of 35,000 to 50,000 troops and remove all U.S. soldiers from Iraq by Dec. 31, 2011 the same deadline the Bush administration negotiated with the Iraqi government last year in its Status of Forces Agreement.

Additionally, some combat units would remain in Iraq beyond Obama's declared August 2010 withdrawal. Rather than returning home, they would simply face reassignment as "advisory training brigades."

Even as combat troops are brought home, Pentagon officials have said fresh units will continue deploying to Iraq.

Yaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwnnnnnnnn.

Election is just a couple months away.

More "news" to help the democraps.

Another list of broken promises, all the troops were suppose to come home. I guess they have been building bases in Saudi and other areas to keep our soldiers in the area, another game of smoke and mirrors. Keep your promises for a change Mr. Obama and bring all our troops home. Stop doing what big business is telling you to do!

I think that Obama really thought that he was going to be president, not just a puppet on a string...
He had a rude-awakening..

He was brought from the back of the pack, a no-body, to be just another token-black/Uncle-tom for the white-masters to manipulate the masses...
