Iraq Withdrawal Time Horizon= 2011? translated an article today from the Iraqi newspaper al-Sabah saying that there has been a breakthrough in the negotiations between the al-Maliki government and the Bush administration on a status of forces agreement. The US would commit to withdraw most troops by 2010-2011 assuming ground conditions permitted. The US military would no longer be able to arrest Iraqis at will.

The wire services don’t have this, so it is hard to know if there is really an agreement yet.
