Quote: US Mission Iraq – Off the Radar Screen Until …

“What is going to be the will of our country and our Congress to support our activities there in the out years? […] Once the troops are really gone completely, other than security cooperation folks, but once they are completely gone, this turns into just another diplomatic post. And until there are some tragic events there, I think it is off the radar screen.”
