One of Kentucky's senior congressmen agrees with General Petraeus' assessment.
Representative Hal Rogers is against bringing the troops home now.
Rogers says the troops are making progress..and contrary to Democrats and some moderate Republicans.... he says the new strategy is working.
"Those soldiers who have served there injured or even killed there...we owe them a successful conclusion to the work they have took part in," says Rogers.
Rogers says the troops need to come home as soon as possible..but he says the Iraqi situation is critical in the war against terror.
