FORTUNATELY, NO ONE SENSIBLE TAKES THE UR'S WORD SERIOUSLY:

U.S. willing to leave 10,000 troops in Iraq past year's end, officials say ( David S. Cloud and Ned Parker, 7/06/11, Los Angeles Times)

The White House is prepared to keep as many as 10,000 U.S. troops in Iraq after the end of the year, amid growing concern that the planned pullout of virtually all remaining American forces would lead to intensified militant attacks, according to U.S. officials. [...]

Unless Iraq asks for a change in its 2008 agreement with the George W. Bush administration, only about 200 active-duty troops would remain as advisors after December, the officials said. More than 166,000 American troops were in Iraq in 2007 when the U.S. military presence there peaked. There are about 46,000 remaining. [...]

As a candidate in 2008, President Obama promised to end the conflict in Iraq, and after taking office, he pledged to abide by the deadline.
