Barbara Starr inside the Pentagon

From CNN's Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr: Army officials are concerned this deployment will in fact delay the ability to ensure all troops get two years at home between deployments. The goal was to make that happen by 2011 … that could now be delayed, a senior Army official tells me. But the Army will ensure, he says, no more extended 15 month tours, and no "stop loss."
