ABSTRACT
The article discusses the political nature of the deal between the U.S. and Iraq over the future presence of American troops in Iraq. The deal known as the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) would mark the beginning of the end of the U.S. occupation and require complete troop withdrawal by the end of 2011. Sunni hard-liners joined Shi'ites loyal to cleric Muqtada al-Sadr in opposing the deal, while Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki won enthusiastic backing from Anbar province.
