Bush Plans to Increase Troop Level by 20,000

From today's Guardian:

The Iraq study group is expected to issue it's recommendations centered around the fact that Bush has said no to withdrawal.

Four-point strategy
· Increase US troop levels by up to 20,000 to secure Baghdad and allow redeployments elsewhere in Iraq
· Focus on regional cooperation with international conference and/or direct diplomatic involvement of countries such as Kuwait and Saudi Arabia
· Revive reconciliation process between Sunni, Shia and others
· Increased resources from Congress to fund training and equipment of Iraqi security forces
