Bush supports timetables, Fossella supports withdraw plan

A little reminder.

Fossella supports withdraw plan
via VetoFossella.com;

"The President has a responsibility to articulate America's long-term strategy before placing even one soldier in harm's way. He has asked the Congress and the American people to follow his lead, but he has shrouded in darkness where that road will take us. Leading military and foreign policy experts have questioned why the Administration won't define the mission and what plans are in place for us to withdraw."

"The President must have a frank discussion with the American people as to what our military's mission is, when victory will be achieved and how it will be achieved." -Rep. Vito Fossella

Bush supports timetables
via Think Progress;

“Victory means exit strategy, and it’s important for the president to explain to us what the exit strategy is.” - George W. Bush, Houston Chronicle:

“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it’s also important for the president to lay out a timetable as to how long they will be involved and when they will be withdrawn.” - George W. Bush, Scripps Howard/Seattle Post-Intelligencer

The fine print, is that both of these men were criticizing President Clinton and our involvement in Kosovo, a war that had no US casualties, a war that had real NATO and allied support. Of course Kosovo never attacked us, if only Bush and Fossella knew Iraq didn't either.
