Default Re: White House downplays Bush remark on Iraq troop pullout

The following is the first sentence from the preceeding comment:

"Bush proposed a troop reduction of 25,000 or possibly less by July of 2008 which would leave us under the pre-surge level."

This sentence is inaccurate and should read:

"Bush proposed a troop reduction of 25,000 or possibly less by July of 2008, which would still leave us at "surge" levels."

I don't think I excerpted this sentence from one of the articles on this thread; however, if I did, the writer is mistaken.

The only part I could find that I referenced from one of the articles on this thread was:

"Bush proposed a troop reduction of 25,000 or possibly less..."

I couldn't find the remainder of the sentence in the article:

..."which would leave us at the "pre-surge" levels," so I'm assuming I wrote it and wanted to correct it.

However, if I did not.

The writer is COMPLETELY inaccurate.

If you find the remainder of the partial excerpt in the article, please point it out to me.

I would be interested to see why this inaccurate statement would have been made.
