Romney Criticizes Obama Over Iraq Pullout

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney attacked U.S. President Barack Obama on Thursday, for what he termed Obama’s “signature failure” to keep some troops in Iraq to prevent the country falling back into sectarian conflict.

Romney told Reuters he feared leaving Iraq without a stabilization force could put the hard-earned successes and victories there at risk.

“I hope that risk is not realized. I hope that we're able to see stability there but the president’s failure to secure an agreement and maintain 10,000 to 30,000 troops in Iraq has to be one of his signature failures.”
