Biden announces end of US combat mission in Iraq by year’s end

Recommended Posts

President Joe Biden has ordered the end of the combat role for American troops in Iraq in the coming months, a move that will for now retain U.S. service members in the country as advisors, he announced Monday at the White House.

“Our role in Iraq will be … just to be available, to continue to train, to assist, to help and to deal with ISIS as it arises, but we’re not going to be, by the end of the year, in a combat zone,” Biden said alongside Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, according to a White House pool report.
