Pelosi Statement Following Her Briefing With General Petraeus

April 25, 2007
Speaker Pelosi released the following statement on her briefing yesterday with General David Petraeus:

General Petraeus and I had a very informative half-hour discussion yesterday, which included the assessment of the situation in Iraq that he will share with other House Members today. I appreciated his report and his responses to my questions on security and political issues in Iraq. We share a conviction that the war in Iraq will not be resolved militarily, and I look forward to future reports from him on the effects of President Bush's escalation plan.
