"Let me be clear. The violence in Anbar has gone down despite the surge, not because of the surge. The inability of American soldiers to protect these tribes from Al-Qaeda said to these tribes, "We have to fight Al-Qaeda ourselves." It wasn't that the surge brought peace here. It was that the warlords took peace here, created a temporary peace here."--Chuck Schumer on the Senate Floor
I heard this today and was beyond livid. We are supposed to believe Democrats support the troops when they say outrageous things like this??? The thought of these people running the country in 08 is beyond frightening.
