Iraq : A Flawed Policy Wrapped in an Illusion

An Unlikely Lonesome Dove:
"'Our military's done everything that has been asked of them,' Murtha said, regaining his composure. 'The U.S. cannot accomplish anything further in Iraq militarily. It's time to bring the troops home.'

The questioning turned to the inevitable charges that Murtha was irresponsibly advocating a cut-and-run. The Old Bull roared like a lion. 'This is a flawed policy wrapped in an illusion!' he said, pounding the podium."

Finally, a politician dares to call reality by its name. Thanks to John Murtha, Democratic congressman from Pennsylvania. (won two Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star with a Combat "V," and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry.)
