The U.S. Ends Military Operations In Iraq [VIDEO]
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta took part in a ceremony at Baghdad Airport Thursday to formally end the U.S. Military mission in Iraq.
FOX News Radio’s Alastair Wanklyn was there and reports from Baghdad:
There was a ceremony at Baghdad airport, where Commander General Lloyd Austin put away the command flag.
Austin: “Our men and women displayed incredible courage in the face of daily attacks.”
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was there too. He paid tribute to the million-plus Americans who helped to stabilize Iraq.
Panetta: “This progress has been sustained, even as we have withdrawn nearly 150,000 U.S. combat forces.”
Just four thousand or so U.S. troops remain here and they’ll depart within days.
In Baghdad, Alastair Wanklyn, FOX News Radio.
FOX’s Jennifer Griffin talked to Defense Secretary Panetta in Baghdad about the importance of this mission coming to a close.
