Combat Troops Leaving Iraq NOW

All combat troops are leaving Iraq as I watch MSNBC. Richard Engel is in the back of the last truck in the convoy that will cross into Kuwait any moment. Rachel Maddow is reporting from Baghdad. Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews are in-studio. They are the only network covering this historic moment. It's as awe-inspiring as the invasion was shock-inspiring.

50,000 troops will stay one more year as training and security forces. But all combat troops are coming home RIGHT NOW.
