Dems retreat from reality in war on terror
Congressional Democrats promise to “eliminate” Osama bin Laden and ensure a “responsible redeployment of U.S. forces” from Iraq in 2006 in an election-year national security policy statement.It does not sound tough or smart. There is also the credibility issue, since Democrat Bill Clinton let Osama go, because of the same legalisms that the Dems have been throwing up as road blocks to President Bush's efforts to bring the terrorist to justice. In fact the Dems are more interested in terrorist rights than in bringing them to justice.
In the position paper to be announced Wednesday, Democrats say they will double the number of special forces and add more spies, which they suggest will increase the chances of finding al-Qaida’s elusive leader. They do not set a deadline for when all of the 132,000 American troops now in Iraq should be withdrawn.
“We’re uniting behind a national security agenda that is tough and smart and will provide the real security George Bush has promised but failed to deliver,” Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said in remarks prepared for delivery Wednesday.
Update: Gateway Pundit asks questions about the Democrats committment to the task. A part of the Democrat plan is an attack on the English language where in they attempt to redefine the word retreat into redeployment.
