12/07/05 "AP" -- -- WEST POINT, N.Y. Former President Jimmy Carter says
he doubts whether the U-S military will ever completely pull out of
Iraq, despite what the Bush administration says about a possible
withdrawal beginning next year.
Carter was at the U-S Military Academy yesterday to sign copies of his
newest book for West Point cadets.
He said he believes America will have a major military presence in Iraq
for decades to come. Carter's comments come a week after President Bush
told midshipmen at the U-S Naval Academy to expect troop withdrawals
sometime in 2006.
