AP: Rumsfeld to cut Iraq troop levels
By ROBERT BURNS - 39 minutes ago
BAGHDAD, Iraq - Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, with Gen. George Casey, the top U.S. officer in Iraq, right, on an unannounced holiday season visit, hinted on Thursday that the U.S. military soon will begin a modest, additional reduction in troop levels by canceling the scheduled deployment of two Army brigades.
The decision would be the firstmove to drop the American troop presence below the 138,000 level that had been considered a baseline prior to the temporary addition of about 20,000 troops to provide extra security during the Oct. 15 referendum and the Dec. 15 election. Rumsfeld had previously said those 20,000 would be leaving soon.
