A Bi-Partisan Response to the Hawks?

Over the last few weeks and months, as the Iraqi situation has become a much more debatable situation, the Hawks on the right both with-in and outside the Administration have continued to insist that the war is going well and that everything is on-course.

A conference this week on terrorism, security, and America's purpose had a bi-partisan flavor to it as discussions of the Security situation for the US was at issue. A wide variety of speakers were there and Wesley Clark, former Army General and Democratic candidate for the Presidental nomination, was one of the most popular. He and a number of other speakers discussed the situation in Iraq saying that we were not on the correct course, but that it wasn't to late to correct that course. He also felt that the answer was not a complete and immediate withdrawl from Iraq.

The conference, which was organized by the New America Foundation, also featured former- Attorney General John Ashcroft and Republican Senator Chuck Hegel as speakers.
