Giuliani tells Talabani: I’ll stay ‘as long as necessary.’

In a private meeting with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani in New York City today, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is seeking the Republican nomination for President, “indicated that he would keep a U.S. presence in that country for as long as necessary,” according to his aides. The Congressional Budget Office reported recently that a long-term presence in Iraq, such as Giuliani wants, could cost taxpayers trillions of dollars.
