Senate Republicans sharply challenged President Bush's top military general and ambassador in Iraq on Tuesday in a blatant demonstration of misgivings within the GOP about the protracted war.SHOCK!!!! SHOCK!!!!
"Are we going to continue to invest blood and treasure at the same rate we're doing now? For what?" asked Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., who supports legislation setting a deadline to bring troops home.
The deep-seated doubt expressed at the hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee reflected just how far Congress had come since the war began over four years ago. And Republican senators raised tough questions that rivaled those asked by Democratic presidential hopefuls on the panel.
Hagel asked Petraeus why his rosy view of conditions on the ground in Iraq differed from independent assessments on the war, as well as the views of some outspoken noncommissioned officers.
"We've got too many disconnects here, general," Hagel said.
At one point in the hearing, Petraeus said "there are 165,000 different views on the ground" and it can change daily.
The hearing fell on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
