A Way Out of Iraq

I'm a little skeptical of how the word "responsible" functions in these discussions, but this seems like a good enough plan for ending the war and occupation in Iraq. I signed on. And you?

It looks like a good plan, especially considering the live alternatives, such as the McCain-Bush-Cheney vision, as accurately described by Matthew Yglesias:

To reason, as McCain does, that because al-Qaeda will boast if we leave Iraq that we therefore most make an unlimited commitment to indefinite warfare there is crazy; we'd be letting a small group of fanatics pin down a huge swathe of the American military with nothing more than the threat to release a gloating videotape.
How many more Americans should die for the sake of stopping that gloating videotape?
