During the 12 o'clock EDT hours today Voice to America reported, and it was confirmed by their citizen reporters and some European media, that American ground combat troops, supported by American air power, have been called in by the Iraq government because of an attack on an army base in the Bagdad area.
Reports are that waves of suicide bombers, attacking in pairs, have been breaching the base for the last few days and blowing themselves up. These attacks are supported by standard arms fire. Early reports are several wounded and 7 KIA.
So what does this do to the announcement by President Obama 5 days ago that combat operations have ended and that our combat troops were pulled out 2 weeks ahead of schedule?
Does this add anything to those who were against announcing a pullout date saying that now the enemy knows when we are leaving they will just hold back until we are gone then resume their attacks?
