Lugar: 2002 war authorization is “obsolete and requires revision.”
In a moment of sanity, it seems Senators Richard Lugar and John Warner have filed an amendment today that “would require the president to seek a new rationale for the war authorization by the time Gen. David H. Petraeus, the top military commander in Iraq, delivers a report in September on the progress of the troop buildup. The measure also would require the president to review and update the National Intelligence Estimate for Iraq no later than Sept. 4.”
I am all for anything that gets us the fark out of there asap. I don’t think this will do it, but something has to change, and both sides of the aisle have to find common ground and push Bushs buttons.
