Congress's new Democratic chiefs criticized plans President George W. Bush is considering to boost US troop strength in Iraq as the White House reshuffled its military leaders in the Middle East and its national security team. In a letter sent to Bush on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House leader Nancy Pelosi urged him to begin pulling troops out of Iraq in four to six months. They also asked the president to begin shifting the mission of US forces there from combat to training and logistical support of the Iraqis. "We are well past the point of more troops for Iraq," Pelosi and Reid, wrote a day after their party took control of Congress.
