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.
