“On January 10, 2007, the president [Bush] announced in a speech to the nation that he was committing twenty thousand additional troops–five brigades–to Iraq, and most of them would go to Baghdad. He was also increasing American forces in Anbar, the home base of al Qaeda in Iraq, by four thousand. The brigades would deploy over time so that it would be summer before we reached full strength.”
