The US withdrawal from Iraq by the Numbers

The US Pullout from Iraq by the Numbers – RTE World Report

Based on the terms of a 2008 security agreement signed by the United States and Iraq, all American forces must withdraw from the country by the end of this year. Though Iraqi politicians have said they will open negotiations with Washington on keeping a contingent of US army trainers beyond that date, no formal talks have yet been held and the 2008 agreement remains in force if no deal is agreed.

A short radio piece by me on the logistical task of the US pullout was featured in the August 21, 2011 edition of RTE Radio 1′s World Report. As usual, just hit play above to listen.
