King Stands by Bush Who Doesn't Know What He Stands For

On the Iraq withdrawal timetable King tells Newsday "King said he stood by Bush and is not in favor of placing a timetable on troop withdrawal. "Congress cannot be micromanaging the war ... I can see sending a signal to the Iraqis, but not cutoff dates," he said."

Victory means exit strategy, and it’s important for the president to explain to us what the exit strategy is.”

“I think it’s also important for the president to lay out a timetable as to how long they will be involved and when they will be withdrawn.”
