WASHINGTON (AP) --Sen. Johnny Isakson of Georgia says he saw
remarkable progress during a visit to Iraq last weekend and the
Iraqi government has a narrow "window of opportunity" to ensure
the stability lasts.

"We've all been reading some of the accounts about the
improvements," the Republican from Marietta said in a conference
call with reporters Thursday. "I can tell you unequivocally ...
that it is a remarkable difference."

Isakson warned, however, that if feuding Iraqi leaders cannot
reconcile their differences soon "then everything could dissipate
very quickly." That window of opportunity lasts "at best"
through the end of this year, he estimated.
