Obama to mark end of Iraq war

President Barack Obama will mark the end of the war in Iraq at a special ceremony Tuesday.

The president will be joined by Vice President Joe Biden at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland for the return of the United States Forces-Iraq colors, the flag that was lowered from a staff in Baghdad last week.
