WASHINGTON, DC - April 08: Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, D-Conn., and presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., talk before Gen. David H. Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan C. Crocker testified during the Senate Armed Services hearing on the situation in Iraq. Petraeus told Congress that he has recommended a halt to troop withdrawals for at least 45 days once the "surge" forces added last year depart this summer. If President Bush accepts the recommendation as expected, the number of U.S. troops in Iraq would level off at about 140,000 in July, down from about 156,000 now. After the pause, administration officials will decide if and when withdrawals might continue. (Photo by Scott J. Ferrell/Congressional Quarterly)
