Democratic Leadership Urges Bush to Reject Iraq War Escalation

Brian Zick

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have written a letter to Bush. "We want to do everything we can to help Iraq succeed in the future but, like many of our senior military leaders, we do not believe that adding more U.S. combat troops contributes to success. They, like us, believe there is no purely military solution in Iraq. There is only a political solution." "Adding more combat troops will only endanger more Americans and stretch our military to the breaking point for no strategic gain." Via Oliver Willis
