Last U.S. combat has left Iraq

(CNN) — The last U.S. brigade combat team has left Iraq, leaving 56,000 U.S. troops in the country, according to the U.S. military.

Another 6,000 troops must leave the country to meet President Barack Obama’s September 1 deadline for the end of U.S. combat operations in the country and the beginning of Operation New Dawn.

In all, 50,000 U.S. forces are to remain in an advise-and-assist mission.
