Combat Troops Leave Iraq

Even though the last combat brigade left Iraq yesterday, 56,000 US service members remain, but that number will decrease to 50,000 by the end of the month. The drawdown represents a shift from combat operations to “advising and assisting,” reports the Department of Defense. However, the first 18 days of August have seen 15 US casualties – making August the most deadly month since June of 2009.
