Joe Lieberman stays the course with Bush on Iraq

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Joe the sanctimonious Hawk is in Iraq reciting the Bush administration talking points. One question, Joe, since you're so supportive of the war: What the hell is the mission in Iraq of which you speak?:

U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman told Iraq's prime minister Wednesday that U.S. forces will remain in Iraq until their mission is complete, despite growing unease in Congress about the progress of the conflict here.

"We cannot let extremists and terrorists, a small number, here in Iraq deprive the 27 million Iraqis of what they want which is a better freer life, safer life for themselves and their children" Lieberman said after his meeting with Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari.
And, Joe, yesterday, the Iraqi government said that they want us to leave and that killing our troops (the occupying force) isn't terrorism. Since you are the first US official to meet with the Iraqi government since that happened, did you discuss those developments with the Prime Minister?

Lieberman also downplayed the Murtha speech. And he probably wonders why his presidential campaign was such a disaster.
