No Iraq request for keeping US troops
BAGHDAD - Iraq has not requested an extension of an end-2011 deadline for the United States to withdraw its troops, the top US military officer said on Friday, following talks with Iraq's prime minister.

Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the US military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, said during a visit to Baghdad that Iraq would need to begin talks very soon if it wanted to alter that plan in order to avoid "irrevocable logistics and operational decisions we must make in the coming weeks".
