How Will the Neo-Cons Spin This?
When Russ Feingold called for a timetable for bringing home the troops from Iraq, the right wing attacked him. As always they parroted the Administration’s “stay the course” rhetoric. It now looks like the troops actually support the Feingold policy. A new Zogby Poll found that 72% of American troops serving in Iraq think the U.S. should exit the country within the next year. Nearly one in four say the troops should leave immediately. This could prove a little difficult for the right wing propaganda machine. Will they accuse the troops of not supporting themselves? Will they accuse them of having a “cut and run” strategy?
