Flights Home for Troops-Canceled

Any American family thinking their soldier is coming home soon from Iraq may be in for a nasty surprise.

All flights out of there for troops at the end of their deployment are canceled, while the military tries to figure out how to make Baghdad safe.

President Bush had said earlier this week that soldiers in other parts of Iraq would go to the capital.

Defense officials say commanders are working out the details of a plan to move as many as five-thousand soldiers with tanks and armored vehicles.

They'd team up with Iraqi police and army units, turning every Baghdad operation into a joint effort.

America now has about 130,000 troops in Iraq, with 30,000 in the capital.
