Iraq

The last American troops are scheduled to depart Iraq at the end of this year. This draw down would not have been possible without the success of the surge of forces that restored security to the population of Iraq and allowed the Iraqi government the opportunity to build their capacity in order to take the lead in providing security for their country. With the democratic uprisings that are transforming the Arab world, Iraq is currently the most transparent and democratic country in the region. It’s vital that the United States remain an engaged partner with Iraq. A successful democracy in the heart of the Middle East that is a partner with the U.S. in fighting Islamic extremism is a great victory for free people.
