BAGHDAD, March 20 (UPI) -- Three Democratic members of the U.S. Congress traveled to Iraq for talks with U.S. and Iraqi government leaders, U.S. military officials said Thursday.

Reps. Brad Ellsworth of Indiana, Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas and Carol Shea Porter of New Hampshire visited Camp Dublin, where they were briefed by U.S. Army Lt. Gen. James Dubik.

The general reportedly provided them with information on force generation and replenishing the ranks of Iraqi troops.

The three were also reportedly briefed by Iraqi commanders and were encouraged to speak with Iraqi soldiers about the training they have received from U.S. forces.
