It was September 11, 2007, General Petraeus was testifying at the Senate Armed Services Committee, when asked by Senator Warner on whether pressing ahead on the war “is making America safer”, the General answered, “Sir, I don’t know, actually”.
From the article:
Despite the expected troop reductions, Republicans continued to back away from the Bush policy. Rep. James Walsh (R-Syracuse), who nearly lost his seat over his support of the war last year, said, “I believe it is time to start bringing our troops home.”
Ed. Note: Isn’t it about time to bring the troops home? It’s been two years since making this statement. OUT NOW.
