McConnell Speaks on Iraqi Government

As the violence continues in Iraq politicians here in the United States look forward to September for an assessment on the success of the troop surge.

On CBS's "Face the Nation" Republican Minority Leader Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell said the Iraqi government has been a letdown.

"The Iraqi government has been a pretty big disappointment. We've given them an enormous opportunity here, over the last four years, to have a normal country. And so far, they haven't been table to take advantage of this opportunity and our commitment will not be there forever", says Senator McConnell.

McConnell added he believes there could be a pull out of troops in Iraq beginning this fall.
