Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I was sure I had read it somewhere, but I googled and didn't fint what I was looking for. I did found some articles urging the Pentagon to do this kind of planning. Then I found this.

A spat between Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and Undersecretary of Defense Eric Edelman over Mrs. Clinton's inquiries about Pentagon plans for the future withdrawal of troops in Iraq -- and whether talk of such plans was emboldening the enemy -- drew a response from Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates.

In a letter to Mrs. Clinton sent yesterday, Mr. Gates offered his assurance that contingency planning "is indeed taking place with my active involvement as well as that of senior military and civilian officials and our commanders in the field." Mr. Gates added that he considers such planning "to be a priority for this Department."
