Morning Newsdome: Iraq war over? Ann Coulter gay icon? Hell freezes over.

Posted By on Thu, Aug 19, 2010 at 10:58 AM

>> The last American combat troops have left Iraq as combat operations in the country are set to end August 31. About 50,000 troops will remain in Iraq, though, and will be called "trainers" to assist with policing the country. New name, same war. (CNN)

>> As the illegal immigrant debate rages on in the States, France is enforcing their own xenophobic policies. Seventy-nine Roma, often referred to as Gypsies, were flown out of the country as part of France's crackdown on illegal immigrants, and the government is offering 300 euros to every Roma adult who accepts the "voluntary return." At least they're paying them. (CNN)

>> Floods in Pakistan have left over 4 million people homeless, more than double the 2 million estimated. While the White House will announce more relief funds today, it's odd Pakistan hasn't received the same humanitarian outpouring that Haiti experienced. (CNN)

>> One in five Americans believes President Obama is a Muslim, with the percent of people correctly identifying him as a Christian down from nearly 50 percent when he took office to 34 percent. How is it possible that people forgot the president's religion? (the Washington Post)

>> And finally: Conservative psycho Ann Coulter will be the guest of honor at HomoCon, GOProud's inaugural party in September, where they call her "the right-wing Judy Garland." It's bad enough these gay republicans hate themselves, but supporting Ann Coulter is unforgivable. (CBS News)
