The last U.S. combat brigade left Iraq. The fact that the security situation in the country is still very fragile indicates also the following fact. Journalists have traveled with troops, but were allowed to transfer information only when the convoy crossed the border with Kuwait.

He is the President of the Euro Group and he wants to criticize the decision of Slovakia’s parliament not to support the bailout for Greece. No problem. Jean-Claude Juncker has every right to criticize it if he thinks it was a bad move. But he should based his criticism on the real facts, not on his version of history.
