Pressure on Bush to begin withdrawing his occupying forces has been growing over the last several weeks. The American public increasingly wants their soldiers home, and calls are mounting in Congress as well.

Now another voice has joined the chorus to get the Americans out of Iraq, and this one comes from a surprising source: The current Iraqi government! The communique, which was prepared not only by Sunnis but Kurds and Shiites as well, says it is time to establish a timetable for withdrawal of foreign forces from the country.

It stops short of calling for my return to power, but I'm sure that's only a matter of time.
