(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Breaking news on President Obama's plans to pull combat troops out of Iraq in August, 2010, with 35-50,000 non-combat troops still on the ground reported. Live discussion held with CNN's Michael Ware and David Gergen about Obama's plan. [WARE - says it is a relatively sound strategy from a presidential candidate who promised to end the war with questions about the "transition troops."] [GERGEN - says Obama is quite cautious in foreign policy by choosing the middle options in Iraq and Afghanistan.] [WARE - says we may have to dig in in Afghanistan and it depends on what the goals are as compared to the original goals in Iraq.] [GERGEN - says Obama's budget assumes savings in the wars.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) The Pentagon's reversal of the ban on photographs of the war dead when the flag-draped caskets come home reported.

Cooper, Anderson
