President Bush will tell the nation this week he plans to reduce the American troop presence in Iraq by about 30,000 by next summer, but will condition those and further cuts on continued progress, The Associated Press has learned.
In a primetime television address, probably Thursday, Bush will endorse the recommendations of his top general and top diplomat in Iraq, following their appearance at two days of hearings in Congress, administration officials said.

Is funny how they spin things in DC in order to score political points, what he is doing is bringing home troops already schedule to come back and bring troops levels to per surge levels.
The Pentagon had already signal that they could not maintain troops levels that high for more than a year without causing some serious damage to military personnel strength in other places and to equipment.
My eloquence is just astounding, isnt it. Thanks for the mention.
