The last base has closed, the last troop departed, promise kept.
Obama may not be doing everything I'd like him to, but certainly the first reason he said he was running for president, to end the war in Iraq, he has made good on.
I know, I know, there are still plenty of nonmilitary U. S. government agents of one kind or another still in Iraq, including I'm sure secret agents. But the military presence and the bases are gone, and that's more than we can say for Japan and Germany after over half a century.
Credit where credit is due. And like Robert has commented, hopefully the money saved from the end of this military presence in Iraq will be used for health and education and infrastructure etc. right here in the USA.
Now if we can get them to close down some bases elsewhere around the world...
