WhenVirginiaWasBlue.com: Webb on Iraq-Drawdown ‘appropriate and crucial’

U.S. Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., a member of the Senate Committees on Foreign Relations and Armed Services, issued the following statement on the end of combat operations in Iraq on Tuesday:

“After more than seven years of operations and countless rounds of troop rotations, I am heartened today by the President’s confirmation of the end of the U.S. combat mission in Iraq and his stated intention to withdraw all our troops by the end of 2011. Although our residual force of 50,000 will continue to perform hazardous duties during the year ahead, today’s transition is an important milestone.”
