Iraq in the Rear-view Mirror

Hosted by

The Army's 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division was the last combat detachment to leave Iraq after seven years of warfare. Over the course of three days, 360 military vehicles and 1800 soldiers went from Baghdad through the Shiite south and finally into Kuwait. "The road out is marked with blood and regret for the years [these soldiers] spent away from family." That's according to Ned Parker, an embedded reporter from the Los Angeles Times.
