After nearly a decade of fighting, President Obama on Friday announced the end of the Iraq war, keeping his campaign promise from 2008.
"Today I can say that our troops in Iraq will definitely be home for the holidays," Mr. Obama said in the White House briefing room, "the long war in Iraq will come to an end by the end of this year."
