WASHINGTON (AP) - Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell says senators in both parties are frustrated with the Iraqi government.
He says there's a growing sense of bipartisan frustration over the lack of progress.
He added that he believes lawmakers would move to pull troops out of Iraq if the Iraqi government asked the U-S to leave.
McConnell spoke today on CNN's "Late Edition."
McConnell, the minority leader, says benchmarks will be a part of the final troop funding bill sent to the president.
Bush has offered to seek compromise with congressional Democrats over a war spending bill setting benchmarks for progress in Iraq.
