(RALEIGH) -- The U.S. military has officially ended the war in Iraq. A ceremony in Baghdad on Friday marked the end of the long war effort but Retired General Bert Moore said he was concerned with what he didn't hear in a remark President Obama made at Fort Bragg on Wednesday.

"Saying that they have returned with honor, which they have, I would have liked for him to have said our mission is accomplished.  We have done what we have set out to do and the Iraqis are now prepared to do it without us," said Moore.

He added that he believes that a lot of the members of the military believe years down the road the U.S. will be in Iraq doing it all over again.

The roughly 4,000 American troops still in Iraq are due to be out of the country by the end of the year.
