The Administration's view of the war in Iraq is divorced from reality, and does a disservice to our troops and the American people. Only when President Bush, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and the rest of the Administration address the realities of what is happening on the ground can we hope to make progress in the region.
We must hold them accountable for refusing to outline an effective strategy for success in Iraq.
That's why I ask you to join me at my website and insist that the President lay out an effective strategy on Iraq.
The obvious lack of strategy for the war or a serious plan for Iraq to stand on its own refutes the "progress" the Administration claims we are making. The intelligence was wrong, and may well have been "fixed around the policy," as the Downing Street Minutes states. We had no plan for victory, and the growing insurgency has created chaos which causes more deaths every day.
Like many of you, I have been speaking out against the Administration's approach to the war since before it began. Together, our voices are much stronger.
We cannot let President Bush continue to send troops to Iraq without an effective strategy for success. We can demand more of this Administration - and make an impact.
We must hold the Administration accountable for refusing to admit the truth and refusing to propose an effective strategy for success. Our soldiers need more than a public relations campaign from the Administration to win this war. They need honesty and leadership.
My campaign staff and volunteers like you will deliver our comments to the White House next week, to make sure that President Bush understands that Americans are demanding accountability and a strategy for success in Iraq.
Your can visit my website and join thousands of others in this effort.
Thank you for joining in this all-important initiative.
