Petraeus urges passage of supplemental funding

Gen. David Petraeus on Tuesday urged Congress to pass an Afghanistan war supplemental funding bill now under consideration.

"Enabling further such progress ... and successfully implementing the president's strategy will require that our work in Afghanistan is fully resourced," he told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee. "It is essential for the conduct of this mission ... that the supplemental funding measure now before Congress be passed. This committee and the Senate have passed it, and it was heartening to see Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi's call last week for the House to do the same expeditiously."
