AFP: Democrats to hold hearings on Iraq
Democrats to hold hearings on Iraq

1 hour, 59 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (AFP) - Influential Democratic Senator Carl Levin opposed a "surge"
of US forces in Iraq if it is not linked to a troop reduction program, and said his
committee would meet in January to study all options in Iraq.

"The bottom line is, the main direction has got to be troop reduction. And, as far
as I'm concerned, a surge which is not part of a program of reduction is not worth
considering," the incoming chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee told
CNN television.

Levin told CNN he plans to hold hearings on what options are available in Iraq
after Bush announces his new plan.

"The first hearing will be on January 11. There will be two additional hearings on the
two Thursdays after that," he told the cable news channel, adding that Defense
Secretary Robert Gates and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Peter
Pace, would be called on to present the administration's position.
