Dems to Run on Dirty Harry Platform--Updated!
This would be funny if it wasn't so pathetic
: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.
First, how are they going to do anything in 2006? And responsible redeployment my Aunt Petunia. They're going to cut and run.
Second, how are they going to "eliminate" Osama? The article talks bravely of doubling the number of special forces and adding more spies, but in the end it's just rhetoric. Does anybody believe that the party of John Murtha and Howard Dean is going to deliver? Let's remember that their standard bearer in 2004 talked about law enforcement, not military solutions.
Update: Our buddy James (whose excellent blog the Chief Brief
you should be reading regularly), points out in the comments that the only way to double the size of our special forces is to lower the standards a bit, so that more qualify.
