Statement by John Kerry on U.S. Troop Withdrawals From Iraq

Below is a statement from John Kerry on the Administration's announcement that they will begin withdrawing 7,000 American combat forces from Iraq. In October, Kerry laid out a series of steps for success in Iraq, beginning with withdrawing 20,000 American forces after the successful Iraqi elections.

"I'm glad that the Administration has recognized that succesful elections in Iraq are the first benchmark toward transferring military responsibility to Iraqis and redeploying American combat forces. The question now is whether the Administration will use these coming days and months in this critical period to achieve a political reconciliation among Iraqis and make 2006 the year we turn the fight over to Iraqis and bring the vast majority of American troops home. There's no time to waste."
