The Strategic Framework Agreement

On December 3, 2008, about 2,000 Iraqi refugees in Syria protested against the Iraqi-American military pact, which stipulated that the agreement would place Iraq under American rule. „We condemn the security agreement, a shameful and disgraceful agreement of the American occupation,“ he said on a banner outside a store in the Shiite-majority neighborhood where the protest took place. [11] The Scholar Muslim Association, a group of Sunni religious leaders in Iraq, accused the Iraqi Accord Front, a party that supported the pact, of „selling“ Iraq[10] and also condemned the agreement as „legitimization of the occupation“. [51] Most of the foreign troops that were part of the troops in Iraq were to leave by 31 December 2008, with troops from Azerbaijan,[53] Poland,[53] Macedonia,[53] Japan,[54] Bosnia,[53] South Korea[53] and Georgia. The Iraqi and British governments are said to have negotiated a security agreement similar to Iraq and the United States. Status of the armed forces agreement. The pact, which could be informal, expected the role of British troops to be minimal by the end of 2009. With the British and American military, a small force of two or three other countries should remain. [53] On the same day, Secretaries Gates and Rice held secret closed briefings for U.S. lawmakers, and none of the officials spoke to reporters. Democratic Congressman William Delahunt said, „There was no meaningful consultation with Congress during the negotiations on this agreement and the American people were totally abandoned in all respects.“ And Oona Hathaway, a Law professor at the University of California, Berkeley, called the lack of consultation with the U.S. Congress unprecedented and said aspects of the agreement go beyond the independent constitutional powers of the President of the United States. [29] Some U.S.

officials and anonymous experts who follow the war have argued that they believe that parts of the agreement could be circumvented and that other parties may be prohibited, including: the parties that give Iraqi legal orders on American soldiers who commit crimes off base and out of service, the party that requires U.S. troops to obtain Iraqi authorization for all military operations. and the party that prohibits the United States from launching attacks against other countries in Iraq. [37] For example, government officials have argued that the persecution of U.S. soldiers in Iraq could take three years, and by that time the United States will have withdrawn from Iraq under the agreement. In the meantime, U.S. troops will remain under the jurisdiction of the U.S. uniform code of military justice.

Michael E. O`Hanlon, of the Brookings Institution research group, said there were „these areas that are not as clear as the Iraqis think.“ [15] When President Obama and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki meet on November 1, one of the main topics of discussion will be the Strategic Framework Agreement. The agreement, signed in 2008, provides the conditions for political, economic, cultural and security cooperation between the United States and Iraq.
