ABSTRACT
The article highlights the verdict of the American public on the U.S. war in Iraq. The verdict from vox populi is in. The People, to boil things down, think three big things: Washington should disengage from the military conflict in Iraq, take out bin Laden and all other known terrorists who mean America lethal harm, and reduce the nation's dependence on oil. That is the agenda.
