Vice President Biden arrived today for an unannounced visit to Iraq. I hope he is there to negotiate keeping about 10,000 U.S. forces around to help safeguard the victory and serve as a strategic counter to Iran.
But what are the odds of that?
From the White House:
Vice President Biden has arrived in Baghdad, Iraq. While there, the Vice President will co-chair a meeting of the U.S.-Iraq Higher Coordinating Committee. He will also meet with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, President Jalal Talabani, Speaker Osama al-Nujaifi, and other political leaders. The Vice President will also participate in, and give remarks at, an event to commemorate the sacrifices and accomplishments of U.S. and Iraqi troops.
