Who here thinks the combat troops in Iraq were really removed from Iraq.
of course, they have been denied air support and they are sitting ducks, so they are less combat troops than targets, but still
They have two air combat brigades in Iraq
CALIFORNIA YANKEE: Combat brigades still in Iraq, but now called 'advise and assist brigades'
I find it highly curious as to why MSNBC was the only media allowed to cover it. Were they making a movie?
Why do you need a poll to confirm this? We did see most leave, didn't we, or are you saying they snuck back in?!?! What's the mystery? There's been no hiding of the fact that the brigades remaining do have offensive potential, if need be. Pretty silly way to start an "Obama lied" thread. You should at least choose a topic that isn't so easily debunked.
It's a long process but they have officially removed the last combat brigade from Iraq.
Reading your reply tells me you fell for the lie. obama said all combat troops were taken out of Iraq. Did they some how send in non combat troops while they were taking out the a fore mentioned combat troops?
Or did they pencil whip the non combat troops into Iraq?
no, they haven't. they've redesignated combat brigades as advisory brigades and *declared* that the last *designated* combat brigade has left.

they can designate it what they want, but only a complete fool would believe them, imo.
Providing the opposition with targets allows for the reintroduction of troops at a later date. It also allows for Krauthammer and Kristol to get their "I told you so" columns published.
Well explain why your link contridics what you said?
As the poll stated
Yes combat troops were really removed from Iraq
No obama lied the combat troops were redesignated but are still in Iraq.
It has to be one or the other.
