Hagel and Webb to Introduce Binding Iraq Legislation

Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) announced on "This Week" that either tomorrow or Tuesday, he and Jim Webb will introduce binding legislation to change course in Iraq.

This legislation will have the "force of law" - no more non-binding resolution crap. It will focus on redeployment, training, and equipment.

Hagel also said that we are "destroying" our military; the surge is failing; and he raised the specter of impeachment.

Unity 08 ticket: Hagel/Webb?

Hagel shows the courage that the Democratic Party lacks. He's not afraid to show by his actions what an idiot he is.

I like Hagel too on this Iraq issue.

Oddly enough he was one of only two Senators (the other was Chris Bond of Missouri) to vote against restoring the Senate's consent as part of the U.S. attorneys approval process.

Senate confirmation was a requirement for over 150 years--and the past few months have demonstrated exactly why the Executive should not have this unchecked power. I was surprised by Hagel's vote.

I'm a Democrat but if it's Hillary, I'd vote for them. While I disagree with Hagel on a lot of social issues, he's been right about the war and he has the credibility that Hillary doesn't.

Hagel burned all his credibility when hevoted against his own Iraq resolution. Later, he explained he voted against it because the republican leadership asked him to so that the Democrats would be embarrassed by the failing to pass it. It was an incredible politicization of the war and an embarassment for Hagel and the United States.
