Arrow U.S. to cut troop levels in Iraq this month

U.S. to cut troop levels in Iraq this month
updated 8:02 p.m. ET, Wed., Nov. 5, 2008
WASHINGTON - Spurred on by a continued decline in violence, the U.S. military will reduce its presence in Iraq to 14 combat brigades this month — at least two months earlier than originally planned. Military officials say two brigades from the 101st Airborne Division will leave Iraq this month and only one will be replaced. A brigade is roughly 3,500 soldiers. Initially the 3rd Brigade, 101st Division, was scheduled to leave this month, and the 2nd Brigade, 101st Division, was to leave by February. On Wednesday, however, the military announced the 2nd Brigade will instead return to its Fort Campbell, Ky., home base this month, after serving for 13 months, rather than the expected 15.

Iraqi leaders confident of no hasty US withdrawal
BAGHDAD - Iraqi officials said Wednesday they don't expect Barack Obama to withdraw U.S. troops hastily from Iraq because he told them last summer that he wouldn't make a decision without consulting them and U.S. commanders on the ground.

Two More U.S. Military Units Assigned For Homeland Security
Northcom has announced that two more U.S. military units will be assigned for domestic homeland security missions, bringing the total number of combat ready service members operating inside the U.S. to around 4,700, as fears grow about the increasing militarization of law enforcement.

Default Re: U.S. to cut troop levels in Iraq this month

I don't remember exactly where I heard it yesterday, but some talking head said there's some (UN?) agreement/mandate that negates any legitimate reason for US forces to be be 'engaged' in Iraq after Dec. 31 of this year.
(i know, we don't have any legitimate reason, period, don't shoot the messenger.i'm talking about gov't/politics agreements.)
