Since when does "complete withdrawal" mean "cut U.S. troop levels in Iraq to 50,000"?

Marking a long-sought milestone in a much-maligned war, President Obama affirmed Monday that American combat troops will leave Iraq by the end of August - "as promised and on schedule" -as the U.S. moves toward a supporting role in a country still struggling with violence and a fractured government.

Can we call in that new consumer protection agency? The Obama ads promised to "withdraw the troops", but now he's trying to substitute "withdraw the combat troops". That ain't "as promised and on schedule"!
