ABSTRACT
The article reports on the results of a survey conducted by the "Newsweek" magazine on the reaction of the U.S. public to the request made by President George W. Bush to the Congress to wait for a September 2007 report from generals on the troop surge in Iraq before deciding how to proceed. Half of the respondents believed that the reassessment was reasonable. It also found that the respondents had little confidence in the ability of the Iraqi government to maintain order.
