Edwards: Full Withdrawal Not a Commitment

During last night’s Democratic Presidential debate, Dmocratic hopeful John Edwards made clear his stance on residual troops in Iraq.  When asked if he would commit to a full withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Iraq by 2013, the end of his first term, Senator Edwards bluntly replied:

“I cannot make that commitment”

Edwards did say he would immediately begin withdrawing troops, but stressed the importance of leaving troops for the protection of the U.S. Embassy and humanitarian workers.
