Speaking Out on Iraq

In the last week, three thoughtful New Democrat leaders have issued clear statements in favor of maintaining troops in Iraq until benchmarks have been reached to enable Iraqis to provide their own security and control their own destiny:

  • Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (NY)
  • Sen. Joseph Lieberman (CT)
  • Gov. Mark Warner (VA)

    Earlier this month, the Senate overwhelmingly passed a resolution that represented a stinging, bipartisan rebuke to the Bush administration's "Just Trust Us" approach to the immediate and long-range future of our involvement in Iraq.

    What To Do Now In Iraq
    The right course now is neither to give the terrorists a victory by withdrawing, nor to continue Bush's failed policies.

  • New Dem Dispatch: The View from the Vital Center
    Tyranny On Trial
    If Iraq is to become a post-Saddam society governed by the rule of law, and reconciliation among its ethnic and religions factions, the conduct of the Hussein trial needs to transcend the past and help inaugurate a very different future for Iraq.
