On Thursday, the Senate Armed Services Committee will hold a hearing on contingency plans for a U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. A source “close to the committee” expects testimony from Under Secretary of Defense Eric Edelman, who recently told Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) that “public discussion of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq reinforces enemy propaganda.” Last week, Edelman was a “no-show” for a House Armed Services Commitee hearing because the administration felt he should “lower his profile” for awhile.
