• Then, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has recommended a reduction in troop levels in Iraq. The Secretary made the announcement about the proposed drawdown today in Fallujah. Under the plan, the number of U.S. combat brigades in the country would be reduced. That means that thousands of soldiers may be headed home soon. We'll get reaction to today's announcement when FNC military analyst, former U.S. Marine Lt. Col. Bill Cowan joins us.
