Maliki demands 'specifc deadline' for U.S. troop pullout

SPECIFIC.... as in "no security agreement between the United States and Iraq without an unconditional timetable for withdrawal". ... in McClatchy's, here
".....Maliki said that the
United States and Iraq had agreed that all foreign troops would be off Iraqi
soil by the end of 2011
. "There is an agreement actually
reached, reached between the two parties on a fixed date, which is the end of
2011, to end any foreign presence on Iraqi soil," Maliki said.
But the White House disputed
Maliki's statement and made clear the two countries are still at odds over the
terms of a U.S. withdrawal.
