Iraq update

Seven active-duty Army brigades have been scheduled to deploy to Iraq later this
year, the Defense Department announced yesterday, a plan that would allow U.S.
commanders to keep troop levels at about 140,000 through the end of the Bush
administration and into the next president's term.
At least the numbers aren't growing.
The increased U.S. presence in Iraq -- which topped out at about 170,000 troops
-- is expected to go down to 140,000 by the end of July.
