WASHINGTON (AP) -- The No. 2 U.S. general in Iraq suggests it's unlikely that any more American troops will be removed from Iraq this year beyond the 12,000 announced yesterday.
During a video news conference today from Baghdad, Lt. Gen. Lloyd Austin said "what he have right now is what we plan on having for the foreseeable future."
Sunday's withdrawal announcement came hours after a Baghdad suicide bomber killed about 30 people.
Austin says "sustainable security" is close.
