Adds he hopes Obama will listen to commanders in the field and not “stubbornly adhere” to his withdrawal plan.

Also defends Prime Minister Maliki’s clarification of his remarks on Obama’s plan. Says “one inartful statement from Prime Minister Maliki certainly does not change Iraqi government policies.”
