WASHINGTON (CNN)– Despite the ongoing battle in Congress over Iraq war policy, National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley said the White House is pleased with the progress made this week on the Hill. On CNN's Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer, he said: "I actually think we've had a pretty good week both in the Senate and in the House...if you listen to Senator Warner, Senator Lugar - it's the things they are not calling for. They are not calling for an arbitrary withdrawal schedule. They are talking about how important it is, what happens in Iraq, how it affects our security here at home. They are talking about that we are going to have to be engaged with Iraq for some period of time."
Republican Senators John Warner (R – Virginia) and Richard Lugar (R – Indiana) authored a resolution this week that would redeploy some combat troops out of Iraq, and limit the remaining troops to training and counterterrorism missions.
