"The Obama administration favors keeping a smaller military force in Iraq beyond this year than U.S. commanders believe is necessary, officials said Wednesday, although even a relatively tiny U.S. contingent may be too big for White House advisers who are worried about the slumping U.S. economy and the president's re-election chances. U.S. officials in Iraq and in Washington said the matter is still under discussion and no decisions have been made." (09/07/11)
