WASHINGTON (CNN) - Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani couldn't let pass a question asked earlier in the GOP presidential debate on what should be done when top U.S. military commander in Iraq Gen. David Petraeus reports back to Congress this September with a progress report on the U.S.-led troop surge.
An hour after this question was asked, Giuliani brought it back up, speculating Petraeus might conclude this fall the military situation was going pretty well.
"Are we going to report that with the same amount of attention that we would report the negative news?" he asked. For these comments, Giuliani received a round of applause.
