This article is more than 12 years old.

In a much antipated report to congress, top Army General David Petraeus will recommend a gradual reduction of troops and express a general frustration with "the slow pace of political solutions" in Baghdad.

Petraeus answered the Boston Globe's questions via e-mail yesterday. Reporter Charles Sennott discusses the General's thinking with WBUR's Bob Oakes.

This program aired on September 7, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
