    From your sources, which agree:

    In Iraq, as of March 2011, there were 9,207 private security contractor personnel working for DOD

    No, the commanders look at it from a military standpoint not from a political one. Politics is more important than military.

    Care to go into some detail, proving that point? Or, if you mean that the commanders in the theater aren't thinking about Obama's re-election chances, then I would whole-heartedly agree.

    Troop levels will be determined in part based on what Iraq requests and what the mission going forward is.
