Pentagon: More U.S. Troops Not Needed in Iraq

Military Times reports that “the Iraqi army does not need additional U.S. forces right now, top defense officials say.”  

“The U.S. currently has about 3,500 troops in Iraq, far below the latest White House authorization cap of 4,087, defense officials say.”  

“And the Iraqis have not yet tapped the additional military support that Defense Secretary Ash Carter offered to provide a month ago.”
