Congressman Tom Petri is speaking out against President Bush's Iraqi troop surge plan. The president will send more than 21-thousand additional troops, but Congressman Petri, a Republican from Fond du Lac, says that's not the answer. Petri says the U.S. military should be in a supporting role, but should not be relied upon to restore order in Iraq. And Petri suggests the U.S. ought to sit down with Iraq's neighbors, and come up with a plan to restore and maintain order there.
