Bush to Announce Long-Term Troop Cut
President Bush is set to announce plans to bring home roughly 30,000 troops from Iraq, but the withdrawal won’t be completed until next year. When is a “surge” not a surge? When it lasts for years.
’TIS THE REASON…
President George W Bush will this week announce he plans to reduce US troops in Iraq by about 30,000 by next summer, White House officials say.
They say the cuts, with conditions attached, will be announced by the president in a major TV address.
The move would bring the number of US troops in Iraq to “pre-surge” levels.
