Pelosi: ‘President Bush Has Still Not Provided a Clear Plan and Strategy for Success in Iraq’
Washington D.C. – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today on the Secretary of Defense’s report to Congress on Iraq:
“The Bush Administration’s second report describing the measures of security and stability in Iraq is as incomplete as the first report. President Bush still has not provided a timetable for achieving performance standards and goals for the Iraqi security forces. The report does not clearly state what has to be done so that Iraqis can provide security in Iraq independent of U.S. troops.
“The American people and our men and women in Iraq deserve to know what President Bush’s plan is for training and equipping sufficient numbers of Iraqi forces so that our troops can come home. President Bush has still not provided a clear plan and strategy for success in Iraq; until he does so, he will not have met his obligation to the nation.
