Vice President Joe Biden:
“On Larry King Live last night, Vice President Joe Biden said Iraq “could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government.”
Asked to comment on Biden’s statement, Press Secretary Gibbs responded:
“Gibbs said the achievement was “putting what was broken back together and getting our troops home, which we intend to do in August of this year.”
A reporter pointed out that the Status of Forces Agreement to bring troops home was signed before the president took office.
Gibbs called that agreement “something I think that the political pressure that the president, as a then-candidate, helped to bring about.”
Liberals continue their quest to revise history, one day at a time. The success of Iraq isn’t that American troops are leaving, it’s that America is leaving Iraq a free nation.
