This ought to go over well in the Dem cloakroom
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, December 06, 2006

Sylvestre Reyes, the Texas Democrat tapped by Nancy Pelosi to head the House Select Committee on Intelligence had this to say about Iraq:
In a surprise twist in the debate over Iraq, Rep. Silvestre Reyes, the soon-to-be chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said he wants to see an increase of 20,000 to 30,000 U.S. troops as part of a stepped up effort to “dismantle the militias.”

[...]

“We’re not going to have stability in Iraq until we eliminate those militias, those private armies,” Reyes said. “We have to consider the need for additional troops to be in Iraq, to take out the militias and stabilize Iraq … We certainly can’t leave Iraq and run the risk that it becomes [like] Afghanistan” was before the 2001 invasion by the United States.
We await, with bated breath, the Speaker-elect's reaction.

I’m just glad to see a party in power that doesn’t mindlessly follow its leader.

Doesn’t this make you glad that the dems won?

No.

I am glad that they don’t listen to their loudest constituents.

I’m giggling over here. No better word to describe my reaction to cindyb’s silly statement.
