Good morning, everybody, and I want to welcome everybody to the first briefing of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs in the 110th Congress.

Jan 10, 2007 Press Release
“I oppose the so-called surge that constitutes the centerpiece of the President’s plan. Our efforts in Iraq are a mess, and throwing in more troops will not improve it. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, together with myself and other committee heads on Capitol Hill, have repeatedly called for a phased reduction of the U.S. presence in Iraq.
