U.S. General in Iraq Outlines Troop Cuts

NYT reported The top American commander in Iraq has drafted a plan that projects sharp reductions in the United States military presence there by the end of 2007, with the first cuts coming this September, American officials say. According to a classified briefing

Published by the traitors at the NYT, so now the terrorists know our military plans.
at the Pentagon this week by the commander, Gen. George W. Casey Jr., the number of American combat brigades in Iraq is projected to decrease to 5 or 6 from the current level of 14 by December 2007.... General Casey's briefing has remained a closely held secret,

and it was described by American officials who agreed to discuss the details only on condition of anonymity.
And the NYT does not honor condition of anonymity.
Word of the plan comes after a week in which the American troop presence in Iraq was stridently debated in Congress, with Democratic initiatives to force troop withdrawals defeated in the Senate..... Now, after criticizing Democratic lawmakers for trying to legislate a timeline for withdrawing troops, skeptics say, the Bush administration seems to have its own private schedule, albeit one that can be adjusted as events unfold

Blue Crab blogged Well, the last line has been crossed. The New York Times is now publishing secret military troop displacement plans. The are actually broadcasting the plans General Casey has drawn up for how the military is planning to draw down troop levels. This was a classified briefing and someone gave all the details to the NYT to publish. That way the terrorists have advanced warning and can plan accordingly.
