Paul Hackett on War & Peace

 


Plan now to redeploy US troops out of Iraq

Paul Hackett, veteran of the Iraq war, responded to President Bush's "National Strategy for Victory in Iraq."

"The President has left the American people with unanswered questions. We deserve more than yet another glossy public relations stunt," said Hackett. "The President has failed to answer the number one question. I call on him to tell the American people what the mission in Iraq is and describe the strategy for achieving that mission... `staying the course' is neither a mission nor a strategy."

Responding to the "National Strategy for Victory in Iraq" Hackett called the 35 page document, nothing more than, "a smoke screen from a White House completely divorced from the reality of our situation in Iraq." He continued, "The American military has accomplished all that can be militarily accomplished in Iraq. It's time for the people of Iraq to rebuild their nation and it's time to plan for a redeployment of our troops serving in Iraq."
