(Worthy News) – The future of the U.S. war in Iraq will come into focus Monday when President Biden meets with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi at the White House, with the two leaders expected to finalize a withdrawal plan that could fundamentally reshape America’s military role in the Middle East.
Mr. al-Kadhimi made clear in an interview Sunday that he will push the Biden administration to accelerate the withdrawal of the roughly 2,500 U.S. troops still in his country. Those forces have been in Iraq since 2014, when the U.S. founded a multinational coalition to battle the Islamic State group. The terrorist militants at the time controlled a huge swath of territory across Iraq and neighboring Syria.
