“The agreement is believed to have met Iraqi concerns over its sovereignty and its security needs as it continues to grapple with a diminished but persistent insurgency. It gives Iraq the right to try U.S. soldiers and defense contractors in the case of serious crimes committed off-duty and off-base.”
Bush resisted the last part during the entire negotiations. In the end, he capitulated. He’s damaged and compromised our own sovereignty for 8 years. We’re over there protecting and dying for the Iraqi people and we are going to allow the Iraqis to try our military men and women in their courts?!! I would expect this from Obama, but not from a man who proclaims his support for our military men and women. He will deserve his legacy. Which is better, a President who calls himself a conservative, but acts like a liberal, or a President who calls himself a liberal and acts like a liberal? I guess we’ll see soon.
