(CNN) — President Barack Obama on Friday announced that virtually all U.S. troops will come home from Iraq by the end of the year — at which point he can declare an end to America’s long and costly war in that Middle Eastern nation.

“After nearly nine years, America’s war in Iraq will be over,” Obama said. “The coming months will be a season of homecomings. Our troops in Iraq will definitely be home for the holidays.”

    Yeah that’s nice.Did you miss this when Bush signed the Status of Forces Agreement in 2008 setting this deadline.Obama had no choice and actually wanted to stay longer.As it is,about 8500 privatized personnel will stay behind.
