PLEASE GO TO Liveblog: Part 2, # 6.  Do not post anymore comments in the Mothership.  Recommend the Mothership only.

The Senate Committee on Foreign Relations is conducting a hearing titled: "Iraq After the Surge: What Next?" today beginning at 2:30 EDT.  The two witnesses are General David H. Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan C. Crocker.

THIS IS THE MOTHERSHIP FOR THE FOREIGN RELATIONS COMMITTEE HEARING.  If you are interested in reading the comments on the Senate Armed Services Hearing, please follow this link.
Please do not post pictures as they slow things down for those on dial-up.

The hearing can be viewed/heard at (the least troublesome for me)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
