Iraqi Factions Agree that the U.S. Should Leave


CAIRO, Nov. 21 - For the first time, Iraq's political factions on Monday collectively called for a timetable for withdrawal of foreign forces, in a moment of consensus that comes as the Bush administration battles pressure at home to commit itself to a pullout schedule.

GOI: Hey, didn't President Bush say that we will leave once the Iraqi's ask us to leave?

Hmm.

Interesting that about the only thing they can agree on is that the Americans should leave.

Thanks to Blake of "The Next Left" blog for the tip on this story.

I think we have seen the specter in recent days of Bush spinning around abruptly to try to get on board with Congressman Murtha.

Bush is going to have to backpeddle pretty fast, or after November 2006, congress'll put a tarp over the White House and run the country without him. They'll do to him what the Eagles did to Terrell Owens: Suspend him for four months, and then send him home to do pushups on his driveway for the remainer of his contract.

Yeah, I can see the R's coming up with a withdrawal plan just in time for the '06 elections and then claim victory. Once again taking the Dem answer for their own.

At least that would be a good choice for the country but still...
