Lawmakers Expect Troop Reduction
A conservative Republican senator said Sunday most lawmakers believe President Bush will focus on reducing U. S. Troops in Iraq once a top general reports in September on the war's progress. General David Petraeus, the top U. S. commander in Iraq will tell the president and Congress whether the current troop increase is working. By September, when the General makes a report, most of the people in Congress believe, unless something extraordinary occurs, that we should be on a move to draw those surge numbers down. Time will tell.
