Vivian Davis Figures on War & Peace
Democratic Senate Challenger; member of State Senate
On the Iraq war, Sessions said he "could not be more proud and pleased with the success of the surge and the progress in the last two years."
"I think if we can continue this progress in Iraq and it emerges as a strong and decent country that's independent and stable, it would be a very positive development for the Middle East," said Sessions, who has visited U.S. troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and neighboring countries multiple times as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
Figures said she was not in a position to visit Iraq or Afghanistan. "I was against the war from the beginning," she said. She said no weapons of mass destruction were found. "Iraq was not responsible for 9/11," she said.
Sessions said he hopes the US can withdraw "as soon as we possibly can. That's my goal." He said announcing a withdrawal timetable would be a "mistake--clearly not sound policy. It just tells our enemy when they should be prepared to attack."
Veterans: Give America's veterans the healthcare, bonuses, and education benefits they have earned. They deserve these things and more.
