DrewMiller.net: Harkin And Iraq
Excerpted from this post at DrewMiller.net
Harkin wants the troops redeployed by the end of the year. For those following along at home, that means getting them out of Iraq but into places where they are safer and could still assist in the event of an emergency.
I don't really understand what makes December 31st 2006 an ideal deadline - I'd rather peg it to some sort of substantive event in the Iraqi political process - but his resolution has no chance of passing and exists to express a sentiment that I share.
Also, I signed his petition to censure President Bush.
