“I’ve come to speak to you about the end of the war in Iraq,” he told gathered troops.
“Over the last few months, the final work of leaving Iraq has been done. Dozens of bases with American names that housed thousands of American troops have been closed down or turned over to the Iraqis. Thousands of tons of equipment have been packed up and shipped out. Tomorrow, the colors of United States Forces-Iraq
— the colors you fought under —
will be formally cased in a ceremony in Baghdad.”
