Posted: Updated:

UNITED STATES--The top U.S. military commander, General David Petraeus, spoke Tuesday about the "fragile" progress troops have made in Iraq.

General Petraeus said 20,000 soldiers will be withdrawn by the end of July.

During the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, a member of the audience strongly voiced his opinion.

After the 20,000 troops return, Petraeus wants a 45 day window to assess the situation before sending home additional troops.
