House Committee on Foreign Affairs will host a series of meetings on Iraq

Chairman Tom Lantos (D-CA) announced yesterday that the House Committee on Foreign Affairs will host meetings that will examine the conditions in Iraq using a top-down approach, according to a PRNewswire report on the same day. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, and Co-Chairman of the Iraq Study Group, Lee Hamilton, are all expected to provide insight into the current situation at the meetings, which begin on Thursday, January 10. Lantos hopes to unite the international community in stabilizing the region, which as of yet, has been a failed effort. Following this initiation of meetings, various other hearings, which will continue to examine the rebuilding process in the war-torn nation, are slated to take place.
