The War Isn't Over

Two years ago the Bush administration choose to increase the number of combat and noncombat troops in Iraq in a so called "surge." The administration was adamant that this was a temporary surge and vehemently denied that it was an escalation. For all the talk about drawing down in Iraq, Obama still hasn't reduced the number of troops below presurge levels. We still have more troops in Iraq than we did in 2006. Does that sound like a withdrawal?
