REMINDER: President Obama’s Iraq Speech Is Tonight
Matt | On 31, Aug 2010
I know some of my readers swear by their “primetime shows.” But, I’m just letting you know that you’re going to have some interruptions this evening at 8:00 p.m. ET if you watch the major networks.
President Obama is set to address the nation about Iraq this evening. Today, August 31, marks the firm date that he set during his campaign to end the combat phase of the Iraq War. He will remind viewers that the U.S. has pulled out all but 50,000 troops from the country. They will remain for security and other non-combat purposes. Troop levels had once been at over 170,000 during President Bush’s surge.
Vice President Joe Biden is actually over in Iraq speaking with leaders there while the president gets on the horn with us here in the U.S.
So, adjust your DVRs, tune in, turn the channel, or do whatever you have to do. The president will be on a TV near you. Just a friendly heads-up…
