This op-ed, calling for a de-authorization of the U.S. effort in Iraq is rather too simple, and indeed, unworthy of an aspiring President. Here’s one line of which I approve, however:
If the Bush administration believes that the current war, as it is being executed, is critical to America’s future, then it should make the case and let the people decide.
HRC goes on to say that the Senate didn’t authorize our involvement in a civil war, to which NRO’s Andrew McCarthy has this response:
Not a civil war, Senator Clinton. A chaos strategy to win a war al Qaeda is fighting against the United States.
If President Bush and his supporters would forthrightly join the debate, and if certain Republicans wouldn’t simply be quaking in their boots about the domestic political ramifications, well....
