Obama Outlines End to War in Iraq

Hosted by

Today, in his first speech to a military audience, President Obama told Marines at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina that his greatest honor is being their Commander in Chief. Many of them are veterans of more than one tour in Iraq, and he told them the results of his consultations with military commanders. Between 35 and 50,000 troops will remain to train Iraqi forces and conduct counterinsurgency, but all will be out by the end of 2011. Julian Barnes reports from the Pentagon for the Los Angeles Times.
