Wilson visits Iraq
(WOUB) - The situation in Iraq is "bleak and scary."

That comes from someone who visited Bagdad Thursday, Southeast Ohio Congressman Charlie Wilson.

Wilson, a Democrat, and other congressman are making the trip to get their own assessment of the war...

Wilson continues to advocate for a redeployment of American troops out of Iraq.

He says the surge is not working and what he saw of a joint Iraq-American security effort proves that.

Wilson spoke from Kuwait in a conference call with reporters.

A spokeswoman says the group has two more visits planned in that region and it will be several days before they return to the U.S.
