After Big Democratic Push - Bush Administration Starts To Crumble

Reported by Donna - November 23, 2005

After being lambasted by Democrats for several weeks and seeing where the majority of American people stood on the war in Iraq, today we heard a hint that troops would be withdrawing from Iraq within the next several months.

Shepard Smith on Studio B began by saying that the Pentagon had announced that (paraphrased), "Some of our soldiers could be home from Iraq before next Thanksgiving. That's sort of where they're hinting now, or maybe just getting us ready for the idea, or maybe trying to move polls, you never know."

Comment: Thank you, Shepard Smith for mentioning the polls. Before the Democrats and the people of America made their displeasure known the Republicans and the President were 'staying the course.' There was no talk of 'staying the course' today.

While Smith went on to say that there were variables such as surprises in a volatile country or whether the people of Iraq are ready to defend themselves, he said that Secretary Rice said the time is coming soon.

Smith went to correspondent, James Rosen, who confirmed that a senior member of Bush's cabinet (Secretary Rice) said that the start of troop withdrawal will begin fairly soon.

Comments: Democracy in action? You decide, but it seems to me that things came to such a head last week that the Bush administration has no choice but to give into public and Democratic sentiment, that we set a plan in motion to bring our troops home.

I wanted to get this topic down on record to watch in the days, weeks and months to come if we'll hear anymore about 'staying the course' or if the Democrats and the people actually succeeded and a plan to bring our troops home is underway? Just remember - last week it was 'stay the course', this week it's 'the start of troop withdrawal will begin fairly soon.'

Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving to all!
