Deal for Iraqi Troop Withdrawl Near

A deal is near that would empty U.S. troops from Iraq within two years, an Iraqi politician told CNN today, but some kinks are still being worked out.

According to the agreement, troops would be taken off the streets and stay in their bases by June 30, 2009 and leave the country alltogether by December 2010.

That would be nice. Seven-and-a-half years for a war that should have never seen Day One is better than John McCain's alternative. But is this an effort to end combat operations gracefully or a political game Bush is playing?

I honestly don't know what to make of it.
