Joe Biden's answer to BushCo (re: emboldening the enemy)

@ 11:52 AM (91 months, 4 days ago)

A couple of days ago, I reported here on the blog that new Defense Secretary Robert Gates was beginning to sound like his predecessor.

He said that a resolution in Congress which would deny any funding for Bush's escalation of the Iraq war, would "embolden" our enemy.

But today, Sen. Joe Biden reminded us who is really emboldening our enemy.  And as he so duly noted, it's the Bush Administration who seems to be the culprit.  He said "It's not the American people or the U.S. Congress who are emboldening the enemy. It's the failed policy of this president — going to war without a strategy, going to war prematurely."
