    Senator Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut seized on the reports of a terror plot yesterday to attack Ned Lamont, his Democratic opponent for re-election, saying that Mr. Lamont’s goal of withdrawing American troops from Iraq by a fixed date would constitute a “victory” for extremists.

    “If we just pick up like Ned Lamont wants us to do, get out by a date certain, it will be taken as a tremendous victory by the same people who wanted to blow up these planes in this plot hatched in England,” Mr. Lieberman said at a campaign event in Waterbury, Conn. “It will strengthen them, and they will strike again.”

      is someone in the media going to point out to Lieberman and his ilk that this latest terror plot was hatched while the US troops are pounding away in Iraq?

      How, exactly, is the US presence in Iraq preventing this type of thing from happening?

      Leaving will "strengthen them"? And staying isn't?
