President Barack Obama is expected to make an announcement that he will take nearly two-thirds of U.S. troops out of Iraq within nineteen months. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow says that Obama should expect criticism from the left for breaking a campaign promise. “This looks very much more like a Bush plan than like a Barack Obama-the-campaigner plan. I’m sorry to say,” said Maddow.
