WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The top U.S. commander in Iraq has submitted a plan to the Pentagon for withdrawing troops in Iraq, according to a senior defense official.
But Al-CNN has failed to make a headline and a lead quote that goes with what the story says
Gen. George Casey submitted the plan to Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. It includes numerous options and recommends that brigades -- usually made up of about 2,000 soldiers each -- begin pulling out of Iraq early next year.
I am sure their are plans on a pentagon shelf somewhere to invade the vatican if we have to.
But in the end everyone said following these december elections we would probably see withdrawls... said it for some time now.
The house democrats media whority gives them a chance to claim credit for it while they were "speaking the truth to power."
amd they boosted troop levels for the elections so this is a win no matter how you play it out.
Sadly politics not policy has been governing this war for a while
