Obey Reacts To Petraeus

WISCONSIN -- An area congressman says he's not sold on the most recent Iraq Progress Report delivered to Congress. Representative Dave Obey is just back from Washington. This week, the top commander in Iraq - General David Petraeus - gave his summary of the troop surge in Iraq. It concludes that the surge is working, progress has been made and that more time is needed. But Obey believes that there are things the General's report doesn't address. Rep. Dave Obey, D-Wisconsin, says, "It also doesnt take into account that while there might have been some tiny marginal improvement in certain places militarily... the Iraqis are as far apart as ever and that's the key." Obey says he fears U-S troops will be forced to remain in Iraq for the next decade.
