ABSTRACT
The article information on the U.S.-Iraq SOFA Agreement which mandates the withdrawal of all U.S. military troops by 2011. The U.S.-Iraq agreement signed on November 27, 2008 is an extraordinary document, not only for the U.S.-Iraq War, but in the history of the American empire of bases and that nation's numerous twentieth century wars. The document proceeds to strengthen the authority of Iraqi judicial authorities in the case of crimes by US personal, military, mercenary and civilian not within the jurisdiction of military actions. The Iraqi government will take over military responsibility for the Green Zone in Baghdad, the heart of American power in Iraq, in a few weeks time.
