Deal Pitched on U.S. Troops' Future in Iraq
Status of Forces Agreement Being Circulated in U.S. and Iraq Governments

As for the timeline, the senior U.S. official hadn't seen the exact language but said 2011 is listed as a hard date for withdrawal of troops. However, the source added, the agreement has caveats to account for conditions on the ground and wording that, based on those conditions, the Iraqis could ask the U.S. to keep its forces in Iraq longer with the next U.S. president's approval.

SOFAs are used to define how the American military operates in a foreign country. The United States has status-of-forces agreements with more than 100 nations around the world, including Afghanistan, Germany and Japan.
