McConnell Says Some Troops Could Come Home From Iraq This Fall

Senator Mitch McConnell believes there could be a pull out of troops in Iraq beginning this fall.

McConnell was a guest on Face the Nation Sunday morning. The Kentucky Republican says he's disappointed in the Iraqi government, but he says he agrees with recommendations of the Iraqi Study Group which will be presented in September. McConnell says the build up of troops is now complete.

"I don't think we'll have the same level of troops. The Iraqis will have to step up not only on the political side, but on the military side on a greater extent. We're not there forever," McConnell said.

McConnell was also asked about the recently resurrected immigration bill. He says he has mixed feelings about the bill, but expects another vote by July 4th.
