WASHINGTON - US President-elect Barack Obama will immediately deal with military withdrawal from Iraq and the domestic financial crisis after his swearing-in, incoming White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Sunday. "First he's going to meet with his economic team to see where we are on an economic recovery and re-investment plan ... so that the American people can feel confident that things are moving in the right direction," Gibbs told "Fox News Sunday." "And he'll also meet with military advisers to talk about the conflicts in both Iraq and Afghanistan," the spokesman said. "The goal of the meeting certainly as it relates to Iraq is to keep our commitment to remove responsibly and safely our troops, our combat brigades over the course of the next 16 months." Obama has vowed time and again that he will withdraw US combat forces from Iraq in the first 16 months after he takes office. According to a US-Iraq pact, titled the Status of Forces Agreement, the US troops will withdraw from Iraq's cities, towns and villages by June 30 next year to their bases and will leave the country on Dec. 31, 2011.
