A special commission on US policy in Iraq will urge a pullback of some US troops but will not recommend a timetable for withdrawing all US forces, an official familiar with the panel's deliberations said Thursday. The Iraq Study Group's report, to be released next Wednesday, will press for a greater shift in responsibility for the country's security from American to Iraqi forces. It will also indicate that the presence of US troops is part of the problem in Iraq, said the official, who requested anonymity because the panel's recommendations have not been made public. The report also will urge a major push to engage Syria and Iran in a diplomatic initiative aimed at providing a greater regional dialogue, the official said. The panel will demand more accountability from the Iraqi government, although it's not clear how progress would be measured or if there would be specific benchmarks, the official said.
