Gen. David Petraeus made clear in an interview Sunday that no one should expect significant progress in Iraq by September, which many in Congress have identified as a key deadline for assessing the "surge" and continued military funding. In fact, Petraeus said that the counterinsurgency operation in Iraq would require at least 10 years of U.S. commitment.
Has President Bush really leveled with the American people about what’s required for "victory" in Iraq?
Expect more GOP leaders to break with the president in September. Congress will be pushing anew for a reduced troop presence and a new strategy.
