Working at home today, and MSNBC is all atwitter about this:
“In the area of security cooperation, the [U.S.] president and the [Iraqi] prime minister agreed that improving conditions should allow for the agreements now under negotiation to include a general time horizon for meeting aspirational goals,” the statement said. It said those goals include turning over more control to Iraqi security forces and “the further reduction of U.S. combat forces from Iraq.”
A “general time horizon for meeting aspirational goals.” Have you ever seen so many fucking qualifiers?
It is endlessly amusing that the Iraqis continue to believe the Dear Leader and the Dark Lord will give them back their country. Or their oil.
