Troops Cheer Call For Iraq Withdrawal

CBS
Excerpt:

(AP) A call by Puerto Rico’s governor for a U.S. withdrawal from Iraq earned a standing ovation from a conference of more than 4,000 National Guardsmen….
Col. David Carrion Baralt, the Guard’s top official in the U.S. Caribbean territory, said Acevedo received a standing ovation.

“Maybe the (officers) were not expecting those kinds of comments, but having a dialogue is the point of conferences like these,” Carrion said by phone.

The nonpartisan National Guard Association represents nearly 45,000 current and former Air and Army National Guard officers and petitions Congress for resources.
