UK, US to withdraw Iraq forces by early '07

Would love to see this confirmed by BushCo (and hear his spin of things).
One thing that surprises me, is that it isn't before the elections, as I would not put it past the Republicans to politicize it, and reap any rewards for withdrawing our troops from Iraq (like at the ballot).
The Sunday Telegraph said the planned pull-out followed an acceptance by the two governments that the presence of foreign troops in Iraq was now a large obstacle to securing peace.
Wasn't this what Murtha said?

Just glad, once it is confirmed, that there is an end.
