U.S. officially shuts down war in Iraq

U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has signed off in Baghdad to officially end the nine year war in that country.

Several high level U.S. leaders took part in the ceremony, which retired the U.S./Iraq forces flag.

American troops went to the middle eastern country in March of 2003.

The final troops will be out of the country by years end.

We will have more later on the ceremony later today on Mountain News.
