US envoy seeks means to 'finish the job' in Iraq
US envoy seeks means to 'finish the job' in Iraq
(AFP) 1 day ago

WASHINGTON The US ambassador in Baghdad, James Jeffrey, on Tuesday urged the Senate for the means to "finish the job" in Iraq after the complete withdrawal of American troops at the end of the year.

"The Department of State is ready to take the lead. But we need the support and resources to finish the job," Jeffrey told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

He evoked "a historic opportunity" to find in Baghdad a "strategic partner and a force for stability" in the region, but warned a sudden drop in the US effort could allow Al-Qaeda and other "dangerous" influences to fill the void.

"We need to have platforms around the country to carry out key transitional missions for the next three to five years," Jeffrey said.

"These include work, political, economic, security and other officials throughout the country, especially in key areas, such as Kirkuk and Mosul."



unhappycamper comment: This is just another variation of "Get 'R Done".

This camper says get the fuck out.
