It's a Lie! Combat Troops Remain in Iraq!!
Combat brigades in Iraq under different name

7 Advise and Assist Brigades, made up of troops from BCTs, still in Iraq

As the final convoy of the Army’s 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, based at Fort Lewis, Wash., entered Kuwait early Thursday, a different Stryker brigade remained in Iraq.

Soldiers from the 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team of the 25th Infantry Division are deployed in Iraq as members of an Advise and Assist Brigade, the Army’s designation for brigades selected to conduct security force assistance.

So while the “last full U.S. combat brigade” have left Iraq, just under 50,000 soldiers from specially trained heavy, infantry and Stryker brigades will stay, as well as two combat aviation brigades.

Compared with the 49,000 soldiers in Iraq, there are close to 67,000 in Afghanistan and another 9,700 in Kuwait, according to the latest Army chart on global commitments dated Aug. 17. Under an agreement with the Iraqi government, all U.S. troops must be out of Iraq by Dec. 31, 2011.

There are seven Advise and Assist Brigades in Iraq, as well as two additional National Guard infantry brigades “for security,” said Army spokesman Lt. Col. Craig Ratcliff.

Last year, the Army decided that rather than devote permanent force structure to the growing security force assistance mission, it would modify and augment existing brigades.

Re: It's a Lie! Combat Troops Remain in Iraq!!
You are very correct. This is the biggest lie Obama has told to date. I personally know three guys who are in combat brigades, and they are heading into Iraq next month.

But yet the sheeple of the U.S. believe anything thisillegal fucking president says. Just un-freaking believable!

We will be fighting, killing and getting killed there for 50 years.

Oh no my friend. I knew it was a lie the second the words came out of Bammy's mouth. Every word he speaks is a lie.

There is no such thing as a non-combat troop. Soldiers are all combat troops, show me a basic training program that doesn't include combat training.
