Yes, it’s a question. And the longer the war goes, the more I wonder about it
For example, how about these?
Is that ad too connected with Wesley Clark to be convincing? Still doesn’t include someone “on the ground” from Iraq?
OK, then. What aboutthis General?
I’m no Army expert, but reading his title in the ad, I’m pretty sure that this was a guy with his boots on the ground.
Still too partisan?
OK, then. What about the11 Republican members of congress who visited the President yesterday? Among other things, they apparently said this:
“Participants in Tuesday’s White House meeting said frustration about the Iraqi government’s efforts dominated the conversation, with one pleading with the president to stop the Iraqi parliament from going on vacation while “our sons and daughters spill their blood.” The House members pressed Bush and Gates hard for a “Plan B” if the current troop increase fails to quell the violence and push along political reconciliation.”
“…Others warned Bush that his personal credibility on the war is all but gone.”
So, if he’s not listening to these troops, these generals, or these Republican members of congress, whois he listening to?
