Our big Thanks to Mr. Ersking students for introducing our peanut program of 2011. I'm Carl Azuz, you're in store for ten minutes of commercial free headlines starting now. First UP, President Obama has two words for American troops who've been serving in Iraq, "welcome home". That was his message during a visit to North Carolina's Fort Bragg yesterday. As we've reported, the war in Iraq is officially over. Almost all U.S. military personnel will be out of that country by the end of this year. There're about 16,000 U.S. officials and contractors will remain in Iraq. The President and First Lady Michelle Obama praised the efforts and sacrifices of the men and women who served in Iraq and their families. President Obama said the fact that U.S. forces sacrifice so much for people they've never met is an example of what makes Americans special. He also said Iraq will continue to deal with challenges. Some of these are being faced by Iraqi Christian right now. Around 97% of Iraqis are Muslin, but there's a small Christian community there.
