Emanuel on the President’s Politics of Iraq Today

(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congressman Rahm Emanuel, Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released the following statement in response to President Bush’s speech on Iraq.

“After a cost of more than $300 billion, 2,639 American lives and 19,323 wounded in Iraq, America doesn’t need another campaign speech from the president, we need a strategy for success,” said Emanuel. “When General Abizaid said, ‘Iraq could move toward civil war’ and that the sectarian violence is ‘probably as bad as I have seen it,’ and the president decided to hit the campaign trail rather than provide America with a strategy for victory, it’s time for a new direction in Iraq.”
