Lieberman Says Surge Was “Against The Enemies Who Attacked America On 9-11”
That’s what he said when he and Lindsey Graham announced a proposed Senate resolution praising the surge.
LIEBERMAN: That’s why Senator Graham and I are introducing a resolution recognizing the strategic success that the surge has achieved in a central front – the central front of the war on terror against the enemies who attacked America on 9/11/01, and expressing our thanks to our troops who’ve made that success possible.
Think Progress notes that sending our limited resources to Iraq prevented them being directed to the real front in the war on terror, and the place from which 9/11 was launched, Afghanistan.
Is this really the man who was Al Gore’s running mate?
It’s bad enough that he’s supporting the Republican candidate. But he throws oil on the fire when he misstates what happened on 9/11, pro-actively campaigns for McCain, and considers making a keynote address at the GOP convention. Why even pretend you’re a Democrat at this point?Click here for reuse options!
