Immunity from Prosecution for American Troops Remaining in Iraq Next Year

Joint Chiefs chairman Adm. Mike Mullen recently said that any agreement to keep American troops in Iraq beyond 2011 must provide immunity from prosecution for those troops, and that such a deal must be approved by Iraq's parliament.

This statements comes after Washington approved a deal to allow 10,000 US troops stay in Iraq to continue to train Iraqi forces on various military equipment.
