Wexler’s constituents question Petraeus
By Larry Lipman, Palm Beach Post
When Rep. Robert Wexler gets his chance to question Gen. David Petraeus at the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s hearing Wednesday, he’ll be drawing on the advice of about 1,000 constituents.
Wexler sent an e-mail last week to about 90,000 people on his contact list asking folks what one question they would want to put to Petraeus if they had the chance.
Two related questions stood out in various forms, said Ashley Mushnick, Wexler’s press assistant: “When will this war be over?” and “What is the definition of winning?”
Here are some other versions:
“What is the goal and how do we accomplish the goal?”
“Are we winning and is it worth it?”
“How soon can we get our troops out?”
“Is there an exit plan?”
