    Top Iraqi general requests troop withdrawal

    What happened in the House today was unbelievable. I thought the Dems had been cornered but that never really happened. Right off the top Jean Schmidt attacked Murtha, judging him a coward. Personal attacks are forbidden in the House, and she had to withdrawal her comment. From then on the Dems were on the attack while the Repubs continued with a mixture of damage control and mis-truths about Iraq and the WoT. Several Repubs did speak up for Murtha.

    The main point made by all this was that the Dems were completely against the wording of the Repub resolution. The verdict is still on the Murtha amendment though since it has some thought and substance to it. Here is where it gets good...

    With the Murtha resolution on the table, George W. Casey, Jr. (The top US commander in Iraq) has submitted a plan to the Pentagon for withdrawing troops in Iraq
    Gen. George Casey submitted the plan to Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. It includes numerous options and recommends that brigades -- usually made up of about 2,000 soldiers each -- begin pulling out of Iraq early next year.

    At the same time, Rummy pulls a Macnamara and declares he didn't really support the war on Iraq. Wow!
