Gen. David Petraeus is expected to give an upbeat look at the situation in Afghanistan during his assessment of progress on Monday.

It will be Petraeus' first return to the White House since he took over as the top battlefield commander nine months ago.

Petraeus is also expected this week to discuss how the U.S. will begin withdrawing troops this summer on Capitol Hill.
