"A spokesman for U.S. forces in Iraq told USA TODAY Tuesday that Iraqi forces can defend their country from an insurgency in spite of two days of violence that has some military experts calling on U.S. troops to remain beyond a Dec. 31 withdrawal deadline. Speaking to USA TODAY's Editorial Board, U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan said horrific insurgent terror attacks this week will not threaten the Iraqi government." (08/16/11)
