Republican Senator Says Iraq War May Be Illegal

@ 10:28 PM (93 months, 22 days ago)

Wow.  Another one of Bushie's true believers leaves the fold.  What took so long?

Sen. Gordon Smith said yesterday in a speech on the floor of the Senate that he can no longer continue to support the war in Iraq, which he says may be illegal.

Smith said "I for one am at the end of my rope when it comes to supporting a policy that has our soldiers patrolling the same streets in the same way being blown up by the same bombs day after day. That is absurd. It may even be criminal. So either we clear and hold and build or let’s go home."
