The U.S. is sending another 300 troops to Iraq to beef up security at the U.S. Embassy and elsewhere in the Baghdad area to protect U.S. citizens and property, officials said late Monday.That will raise the total U.S. troop presence in Iraq to approximately 750, the Pentagon said. The White House announced that President Barack Obama had directed that 200 troops be sent to reinforce security at the embassy, its support facilities and Baghdad International Airport.Obama has ruled out sending combat troops back into Iraq.That raises to about 470 the number of U.S. troops providing security in Baghdad.
