US military official says negotiations will end fighting in Iraq
The U-S commander of the multinational coalition in Iraq says the violence there "will ultimately be settled by negotiation and inclusion in the political process."
General George Casey was on the morning talk shows, commenting about a British newspaper report that US officials have recently held talks with insurgent leaders. Casey tells ABC that the situation "will not be settled on the battlefield." Casey also says additional US troops are not needed to deal with the attacks.
On Sunday, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said the uprising could go on for years and could even get worse. He also said ultimately, it's going to be the Iraqis, not US forces, that will defeat the insurgency.
