Why Does Joe Lieberman Insist on Losing In Iraq?

Brian Zick

Chuck Hagel and Joe Lieberman appeared on "Face The Nation" today with host Bob Schieffer. Lieberman complained that "too much talk" about the obvious and persistent failure of the Bush administration in Iraq is the reason the US is not "winning." And any diplomatic efforts with Iran and Syria is predestined to failure, because they allegedly have no desire "help us." And that "withdrawal is a statement of weakness." Hagel smacked him down. Crooks and Liars has the video.
