... all this congressional "strategic" discussion and debate would have been much better timed before the fact rather than after. Instead, a blank cheque was handed to the president and it sure didn't take him long to order the troops to engage. So why should a military disengagement require any more palaver. You can always discuss all that great "constructive role in the rebuilding of Iraqi society" stuff later.

JUST RESCIND THE *&!$!# AUTHORIZATION AND BRING THE TROOPS HOME NOW!
