CA Lawmakers debating Iraq war resolution
Thursday, June 15, 2006
Duncan Hunter, the powerful El Cajon Republican who chairs the
House Armed Services Committee, believes the best course is to stick
to the present policy in Iraq, and give our troops the same support they got in World War Two.
Hunter: "When the 101st went into Northern Europe, they had a united American public. Lets give the 101st Airborne, now in Mosle and that tough Suni Triangle, lets give them the same support we gave them in Europe."
But El Segundo Democrat Jane Harman, ranking member of the House
Intelligence Committee, makes the case for why the U.S. is faltering in
Harman: "There are too few troops to stabilize the country and no exit strategy."
A final vote on the House Iraq resolution is expected to take place Friday. From Capitol Hill, Max Cacas, KPBS News.
