Transcript: Gen. Petraeus' testimony and Sen. Clinton
The overall number of security incidents in Iraq has declined in eight of the past 12 weeks, with the number of incidents in the last two weeks at the lowest levels seen since June 2006.
One reason for the decline in incidence is that coalition and Iraqi forces have dealt significant blows to al Qaeda Iraq. Though al Qaeda and its affiliates remain dangerous, we have taken away a number of their sanctuaries and gained the initiative in many areas.

I have a question...
Yes, Madame Senator?
Petraeus, are you a liar???
Is it true your real name isn't Petraeus? That it's Betrayed-us??
Do you really think you can get away with just reading Bush's talking points??
Madame Senator, I don't -
I'm sorry, I'm sorry... so very, very sorry...
...my deepest apologies.
...that's the MoveOn.org money talking, that's not me.
Dammit, she used all of my questions!
