President Obama heralds end of combat in Iraq
President Barack Obama takes the first steps of a U.S. victory lap on the war in Iraq. In a speech at the national convention of Disabled American Veterans, the President will pay tribute to Iraq war veterans, men and women whom he believes have "faced the greatest test in the history of our all-volunteer force," according to advance exerpts of his remarks. Obama will not declare "Mission Accomplished," as his predecessor President George W. Bush did, but he will declare the end of Operation Iraqi Freedom, as the war has been called since the U.S. invasion in March 2003.
