Obama: ‘Time to turn the page’ as Iraq combat mission ends
Marking the end of the U.S. combat mission in Iraq, President Obama said Tuesday night that America would continue supporting Iraq’s government while also looking to refocus its energies on the U.S. economy and the war in Afghanistan.
“The United States has paid a huge price to put the future of Iraq in the hands of its people,” Obama said in an address from the Oval Office. “… Through this remarkable chapter in the history of the United States and Iraq, we have met our responsibility. Now, it is time to turn the page.”
The U.S. combat mission in Iraq officially ended at 5 p.m. ET Tuesday, more than seven years after the U.S.-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein. Roughly 50,000 U.S. troops will remain in Iraq until the end of 2011 to train, assist and advise Iraqi troops; such troops could remain beyond that if Iraq requests it and the United States agrees.
Obama praised American troops for their enormous sacrifices in Iraq and said the country spent vast resources abroad at a time of tight budgets at home Though attacks across Iraq continue and leaders are struggling to form a coalition government after recent elections Obama said attacks are at “near the lowest level on record” since the war began, and Iraq is in position to shape its own future. We have persevered because of a belief we share with the Iraqi people a belief that out of the ashes of war, a new beginning could be born in this cradle of civilization Obama said Ahead of Obama’s speech, some Republicans had urged him to acknowledge that the 2007 U.S. troop surge in Iraq ordered by then-President George W. Bush had worked. Obama, as a U.S. senator and candidate for the presidency, had opposed it.
Obama, who spoke with Bush in a phone call earlier in the day, did mention Bush, but not in relation to the surge.
“It’s well known that he and I disagreed about the war from its outset. Yet no one could doubt President Bush’s support for our troops, or his love of country and commitment to our security Obama said. As I have said, there were patriots who supported this war, and patriots who opposed it. And all of us are united in appreciation for our servicemen and women, and our hope for Iraq’s future Obama said the winding down of the war in Iraq means it’s time for U.S. citizens to tackle what he said was now America’s No. 1 challenge: the economy.
Our most urgent task is to restore our economy and put the millions of Americans who have lost their jobs back to work, Obama said..We must jumpstart industries that create jobs, and end our dependence on foreign oil. We must unleash the innovation that allows new products to roll off our assembly lines, and nurture the ideas that spring from our entrepreneurs.
This will be difficult. But in the days to come, it must be our central mission as a people, and my central responsibility as president Obama’s emphasis on the economy appears to dovetail with the mood of the American public. In a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll earlier this month, 56 percent of respondents said the economy would be extremely important to their vote for Congress this year. Fewer than four in 10 said that the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan were extremely important to them. The president also said America must focus on its fight against al Qaeda and the war in Afghanistan, the country in which America has waged its longest war, now approaching 10 years. Obama last year ordered 30,000 additional U.S. troops there, a move that eventually will raise the U.S. total to 100,000. As we speak, al Qaeda continues to plot against us, and its leadership remains anchored in the border region of Afghanistan and Pakistan. We will disrupt, dismantle, and defeat al Qaeda, while preventing Afghanistan from again serving as a base for terrorists,” Obama said. “And because of our drawdown in Iraq, we are now able to apply the resources necessary to go on offense. In fact, over the last 19 months, nearly a dozen al Qaeda leaders — and hundreds of al Qaeda’s extremist allies — have been killed or captured around the world. Obama only briefly mentioned a controversial issue surrounding the Afghan war — America’s plans to start withdrawing some troops from the country by July 2011. By next summer, “we will begin a transition to Afghan responsibility,” Obama said, drawing a parallel between that plan and America’s transfer of security operations in Iraq to the Iraqis. “The pace of our troop reductions will be determined by conditions on the ground, and our support for Afghanistan will endure. But make no mistake: this transition will begin — because open-ended war serves neither our interests nor the Afghan people’s
