My Congressional Representative, David Scott has called for the withdrawl of U.S. troops from Iraq.
U.S. Rep. David Scott has changed his mind about Iraq. After supporting the war, the Georgia congressman is calling for a removal of U.S. troops from the country. Scott said in an interview Thursday on Atlanta radio station WAOK-AM that he believes the job that the U.S. military was sent to do is finished and "a sizable number of troops" should start coming home. "We cannot go the course we've been going on because we are being viewed as an occupier," said Scott, a two-term conservative Democrat who represents the southern suburbs of Atlanta. "I still support our troops, but I do not support our policy." Scott, who sits on the House National Security Committee, said he changed his stance after the Bush administration "kicked Colin Powell out of the saddle." Scott said a pullout of troops should start by February.
I sent him my thanks this morning.
