Lt Gen Babaker Zebari wasn't in the negotiations. So what he says didn't matter. DUH
al Maliki was negotiatinig, and he refused to give American soldiers amnesty, insisted they be accountable to Iraqi laws.
Bush wouldn't stand for that, and instead agreed to withdraw all troops by y/e 2011.
Which is exactly what happened.0
al Maliki was Bush's hand picked choice to lead Iraq. How'd that work out?? Another Bush failure.
Bush was warned that Iraq could break into 3 partitions. And now it will happen.
Liberalism is your weakness. No one can change that but you.

Kurds have been semi independent since the First Gulf War
President G H W Bush conducted this war well, victory and then out.
The Sykes–Picot Agreement held until now and was imposed by European Powers.
Carol seems defensive regarding Bush's mistakes and rambles regarding partisan politics?

It's an issue that will go all the way to the Supreme Court. We can't have someone born on foreign soil as president. If birther” conspiracy theorists support his run for president, they will look like the biggest hypocrites in history. Unlike Obama's birthplace, it is undisputed fact that Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, to a Cuban father and American mother and remained a dual citizen of Canada and the U.S until just last month. IMO, it would be a travesty to allow someone born on foreign soil to serve as president of the United States. Wasn't that the whole point of you birthrs?
what are the mechanics of getting the case in the courts to begin with, let alone the Supreme Court???.....

Obama buried this issue, forever....

Stupidity is your weakness. Too late to work on that.
But when someone goes out of their way to prove you wrong and you insist on not educating yourself and refuse to acknowledge what has been proven and deliberately ignore it, stupidity becomes another symptom of your liberal weakness.

Because there's nothing Obama could do that would be bad enough in your eyes to shake this bizarre starry-eyed love affair that you have with him.

So that would make you stupid and weak - and somewhat dangerous. Blind loyalty on the part of anyone who can see no wrong in the most devious of power hungry and rogue leaders never has a good ending.

Oh, heck...here it is for you, Patrick.
CENTCOM commander Gen. David Petraeus, supported by Defence Secretary Robert Gates, tried to convince President Barack Obama that he had to back down from his campaign pledge to withdraw all U.S. combat troops from Iraq within 16 months at an Oval Office meeting Jan. 21.
But Obama informed Gates, Petraeus and Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen that he wasn't convinced and that he wanted Gates and the military leaders to come back quickly with a detailed 16-month plan, according to two sources who have talked with participants in the meeting.
Obama's decision to override Petraeus's recommendation has not ended the conflict between the president and senior military officers over troop withdrawal, however. There are indications that Petraeus and his allies in the military and the Pentagon, including Gen. Ray Odierno, now the top commander in Iraq, have already begun to try to pressure Obama to change his withdrawal policy.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/02/02/gene...
So like I said, the generals on the ground on both sides wanted residual troops to remain in Iraq.
But we have a rogue president. And Iraq has fallen.
Read and learn, you ignorant old woman!!

----------

On July 1, 2008, Zebari said he briefed members of the Iraqi Parliament that U.S. contractors would no longer have immunity from Iraqi prosecution under negotiated terms of the long-term security pact. U.S. State Department officials could not be immediately reached for comment, but Iraqi member of parliament Mahmoud Othman said he attended the meeting and that Iraqi representatives were very pleased with the immunity agreement.

On July 8, 2008, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani rejected the proposed agreement on the basis that it violates Iraqi sovereignty, following a meeting with Iraq National Security Advisor Mowaffak al-Rubaie. Rubaie, clarifying remarks by Maliki on July 7 that Iraq would accept a memorandum of understanding in lieu of a SOFA, stated "We will not accept any memorandum of understanding if it does not give a specific date for a complete withdrawal of foreign troops". Deputy speaker Khaled al-Attiyah also said on July 8 that the Iraqi parliament would insist on vetting any agreement with the United States and would likely veto the agreement if American troops were immune from Iraqi law: "Without doubt, if the two sides reach an agreement, this is between two countries, and according to the Iraqi constitution a national agreement must be agreed by parliament by a majority of two thirds".

----------

"To protest an agreement they saw as prolonging a "humiliating" occupation, tens of thousands of Iraqis burned an effigy of George W. Bush in a central Baghdad square where U.S. troops and Iraqi citizens five years previously tore down of a statue of Saddam Hussein. The Iraqi parliament was the scene of many protests before and during the vote."

----------

Pay attention, Lorac. Bush signed our withdrawal document. The Iraqi's made it clear that we had to leave.

To blame Obama for Bush's debacle is typical of morons like you, who continue to deny the war was a tragic mistake from day one.

Bush made the most disasterous decision of this century (so far).

It makes all his supporters, like you, look just as stupid as Bush himself.

You own this, with your support for a stupid war that we lost in so many ways.

That was the decision of The University of California Irvine who chose to rent Angels Stadium for one mega commencement ceremony than hold several smaller ceremonies. You are just a sore loser.
UC Irvine would not have done so except to accommodate Obama....

and the Obama speech event is in addition to the traditional smaller ceremonies, which will still be conducted....

taxpayers have the right to more responsible use of their money....

perhaps Obama could contribute the proceeds of his Laguna Beach fundraiser to pay for the stadium rental....

Hawaii is not a foreign country.

Canada is. DUH

Obama is an American citizen.

Ted Cruz?? Not so much. He can renounce it, but the birth certificate exists with Calgary, Canada as the location of birth.

Cruz is not eligible to run for President.

Nobraina is once again talking thru his ass. He's all ass.

Makes no difference. Birther conspiracy nuts like yourself insisted that anyone born on foreign soil is not qualified to run for president. You fringe theorists took your argument to court with one demand after another. Now, you need to either stand behind your "convictions" or admit that you were just crazy loons.

Obama set the precedent that furnishing proof of birth in the US is not required.....

not much different than someone being born as an American citizen in Canada, essentially part of the US.....

and then there were John McCain and George Romney, neither of whom were born in the US......

Interesting.
But did you read the part in my post about only 39% believing Obama "can manage government effectively" and only 34% believing he "has a clear plan for solving the country’s problems" according to the newest Gallup poll?
That would seem more important. Especially since it means you're in the minority now.
"The line it is drawn
And the curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'"
~Bob Dylan
Some lyrics never lose their meaning or timelessness.
Once again, an academic study of the American electorate has found that “Fox News Republicans are the most uninformed.” This new survey was conducted by the The Brookings Institution along with the Public Religion Research Institute. http://publicreligion.org/site/wp-content/upl... What’s different about this study is that it does not merely pit Republicans against Democrats and Independents. It distinguishes between Republicans who regularly watch Fox News and those who don’t. And the conclusions reveal that Fox News Republicans are even more uninformed and extreme in their views than their non-fox viewing comrades in the same party.

By doubling down on crazy, Fox is driving the center of the Republican Party further down the rabid hole. They are reshaping the party into a more radicalized community of conspiracy nuts. So even as this helps Rupert Murdoch’s bottom line, it is making celebrities of political bottom-feeders. That can’t be good for the long-term prospects of the Republican Party.
The more the population at large associates Republican ideology with the agenda of Fox News, and the fringe operators residing there, the more the party will be perceived as out of touch, or even out of their minds.

Bwaaaahahhaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!! !
