Lets just say the Drudge Report is not always accurate.

True, but if Bush doesn't draw down the troop level by 2008, whatever slim chance the republican nominee has in the upcoming election will evaporate.

I don't trust the Bush administration as to their policies in Iraq and fearful of some attacks, perhaps by air, in Iran. I see this 'plan' as nothing more but a whitewash to cover their butts, to get their candidates elected and take away a major political issue of the Democrats. To me, by this September, major decisions to start to reduce troop levels will have to occur as our attempts to create a new post-Saddam Iraq that will have to be friendly to the USA will have proven to failed miserably.
