US denies Iraq pullout amid letter confusion

US denies Iraq pullout amid letter confusion

The Pentagon said that a US general’s letter informing Iraq’s Defense Ministry that US-led troops would leave Iraq ’was a mistake,’ and American defense offcials insisted that the troops would remain there. The clarification came after the letter — unsigned but bearing the typed name of US Marine Corps Brig. Gen. William Seely, the commanding general of Task Force Iraq — was leaked to media.

I really do hope they use this as an excuse to withdraw while saying it isnt any form of loss. Win win for America imo.

Headline is wrong. Official word is that the letter was poorly worded and there is no decision on withdraw yet. Edit: It appears they fixed the headline.
