Iraq: A Responsible Plan

A New Contract With America

The Democratic Party candidates (Netroots Caucus) for the U.S. Congress have put together the best plan I've yet seen -- including from any Presidential Candidate -- to end the war in Iraq.

I have not forgotten a family friend died in Iraq last year.

Just over a year a ago, the current Congress was sworn in with our hopes, on a promise to end the war in Iraq.

They have done nothing.

They have enabled the criminal Bush/Cheney administration while more troops and Iraqis have died.

This is the real deal.
