I listened to this exchange while working the other day. I needed the Kennedy quotes and I found them here:
US General Says Troops Question Support:
"''This war has been consistently and grossly mismanaged,' Kennedy said,repeating his calls for Rumsfeld's resignation. ''And we are now in a seemingly intractable quagmire.'"
So Kennedy evokes the Vietnam imagery with 'quagmire' and I'm sure he would like to see us extracted from that 'quagmire'. Apparently I need to consider him for a Shinola Award since he has no sense of history and being one of the few Seantors to have not been to Iraq he may be in need of a historic example of an 'intractable quagmire:'
And he advocates the same method to get us out of Iraq... Cut and Run... Leave the people to fend for themselves.
