"Operation Iraqi Freedom is over"

President Obama announced today the end of the US combat mission in Iraq. He was cautiously optimistic about Iraq. He encouraged Iraqi leaders to move forward in forming a government.

"Iraqis are a proud people, and they have rejected sectarian war," he said.

He said the US would continue to be a friend and partner of Iraq.

"But the Iraq war is no longer the driving issue for Americans facing job layoffs and home foreclosures. In a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll of 1,021 adults Friday through Sunday, those surveyed rated the economy, jobs, government corruption and federal spending as the top issues shaping their vote in November's congressional elections — and preferred congressional Republicans over Democrats on handling the economy by double digits."
