Petraeus supports withdrawl date

Gen. David Petraeus told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday that he "supports" and "agrees" with a July 2011 withdrawal date from Afghanistan.

"I saw (the establishment of the date) most importantly as the message of urgency to accompany the message of enormous (increased U.S.) commitment," he said.
