U.S. Senate committee repudiates Bush’s war plans
The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations committee today voted 12-9 to repudiate the plans of President Bush for a new escalation of the Iraq war. In his typical Orwellian mode of speech he calls it a ‘surge.’
The committee voted that the plan is "not in the national interest of the US."
Republican U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska joined the 11 member Democratic majority in the committee. He declared "There is no strategy. This is a ping pong game with American lives."
