Key Democrats Call for Iraq Pullout

Every top Democrat on Senate and House committees on military, intelligence and international affairs signed a letter addressed to President Bush calling for a phased pullout of troops from Iraq.


AP:

Key Democratic leaders in the House and Senate have united to call on President Bush to begin pulling U.S. troops out of Iraq by the end of the year, citing an overtaxed military, billions of dollars spent and ongoing sectarian violence.

In a letter to Bush released Monday, the Democrats backed a plan for the “phased redeployment” of troops.

… The recent letter, dated July 30, is significant because ? signed by every top Democrat on committees with oversight of military, intelligence and international affairs ? it solidifies the Democrats’ position and presents a unified front as members head into election season.
