Testimony-Day one on Iraq

Today General David H. Petraeus, Commander of the Multi-National Force in Iraq, and Ryan C. Crocker, U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Iraq testified before the House Armed Services Committee.

Want the testimony? Well, it is not up on the House site, which doesn't even have this weeks schedule up. Although this link to live hearing audio looks promising, although I had some trouble getting it to work here.

But, you can get General Petraues's testimony and his slides from the Department of Defense. You can also get Ambassador Crocker's testimony from the Department of State. Unfortunately, this gives you none of the back and forth discussion. For that you can try CSPAN's web site, under "House Joint Hearing on the Petraeus Report - Part One." Tomorrow will give us part 2.

Want to read some media reaction? Check out the Washington Post's "Petraeus Says Objectives in Iraq Are Largely Being Met" or Fox News's "Petraeus: Drawdown in Iraq to Pre-Surge Levels Could Come Next Summer."

Finally, if you still want more information. Check out some library guides, such as, Iraq and Terrorism.
