Statement of U.S. Senator Herb Kohl on the Iraq Study Group Report

I'm pleased that the Baker report has come to the same conclusions that many of us in the Senate reached last year -- we must begin a phased redeployment of troops as a way to both encourage the Iraqis to take more responsibility for their own security and also to reduce the extent to which a large U.S. footprint is fueling the insurgency. I am grateful to this distinguished group of Americans for their hard work toward a resolution of this difficult situation, and I am hopeful that the President will take this opportunity to move forward in a new direction in Iraq.
