We have already begun deliberately drawing down our forces without sacrificing security," he said.

There are about 124,000 American troops in Iraq. By the end of this month 4,000 troops will leave, he said.

At the peak of President Bush's increase in troops in 2007, there were about 160,000 U.S. forces there.

Odierno said the U.S. has closed 100 bases and reduced the number of foreign contractors to 115,000, from 149,000 at beginning of this year.
