Shocking headline, while true, it’s not reality so much. I wish it could be said that he only did it because he knows the President will veto the bill. But from the post below it’s more than apparent that Mr. Carter is a far-right lemming. From this WacoTrib story, Congress passes war funding bill with controversial timetable, we see that Mr. Carter still doesn’t get it.
Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock, whose district includes Bell County and Fort Hood, said the bill would undermine commanders in the field and lead to failure in Iraq.
â€œWe are sending the message to the terrorists that we are not focused, resolved and determined to win, but instead distracted by silly political games,â€ he said in a statement. â€œWe are telling them that we give up and they have won this battle. All they have to do is wait until August 2008.â€
From the looks of it they’re not waiting. And most informed people know that we’re not fighting “terrorists” in Iraq it’s a civil war. You can go here, Two stories you won’t hear much about on CNN or Fox, to see that we still haven’t gotten the terrorists who attacked us on 9/11 and what our leaving could do to foster compromise in Iraq.
