The Iraq war will come to an end on Aug. 31, 2010, senior officials said, following President Obama's decision to end all counter-insurgency missions by that time.
Obama told top leaders in Congress on Thursday that he will transition the mission in Iraq to training, advising and engaging in limited counter-terrorist operations, according to congressional sources.
The president is expected to deliver a speech Friday at the Marine base in Camp Lejeune, N.C, in which he will order the immediate drawdown of the 142,000 Marines and Army personnel in Iraq.

No wonder Pelosi is irate with Barack over this.
I don't really see the difference between a 150,000 strong anti insurgency force and a 50,000 strong anti insurgency force.
An insurgency is an insurgency.
In other words the Iraq War does not end in 2010.
I wonder who changed Barry's mind? Hmmm.
