William Teach of Pirate’s Cove writes Iraq: Dems Want Phased Surrender “Ah, it appears that the Democrats have brought together focus groups, done some polling, run some slogans up the flag pole, stuck a finger in the wind, and have come up with their newest phrase for cutting and running in Iraq: phased redeployment.” (read more)
