Dude, Where's My Troop Withdrawal?

It was supposed to come with all that success.

TALLIL AIR BASE, Iraq, Jan. 19 — Gen. George Casey, the top American commander in Iraq, said today that the additional troops being sent to Iraq could begin to be withdrawn by late summer if security conditions improve in Baghdad.

“I believe the projections are late summer,” General Casey said, adding, “I think it’s probably going to be late summer before you get to the point where people in Baghdad feel safe in their neighborhoods.”
