This will help us by miles in the eyes of the Iraqi people (who have a big election coming up Saturday). Go Obama!

And...let the lawsuits commence.

I can only wonder who they will go to work for now? The Saudis? Mujahedeen? Somali pirates? Anybody that needs an army and has a lot of money? You can bet they will not be unemployed for long.
