Assessing the Situation in Iraq

9:00 - 10:00 AM EDT

As Congress returns from its August recess, it prepares to receive a new White House report on the situation in Iraq and hear testimony from U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker and General David Petraeus. The coming weeks will witness a series of hearings, debates, and votes on key legislation related to Iraq.

The Center for American Progress Action Fund hosts a breakfast discussion with two leaders in Congress who visited Iraq to assess the situation in August, Senator Robert Casey and Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher. Senator Casey and Congresswoman Tauscher will provide their observations from their meetings with U.S. officials and Iraqi leaders.
