louisiana's senior senator the crypto-republican and consistent bush crime family ass-licking katrina mary landrieu snellings just voted "no" to wisconsin senator russ feingold's s.amdt.2924 the feingold-reid amendment to safely redeploy u.s. troops out of iraq - requires withdrawal of us troops from iraq by march 31, 2008 and cuts off funds in iraq by june 30, 2008. senator feingold's amendment is to h.r.1585 the defense appropriations act for 2008.
On the Feingold-Reid Amendment to Safely Redeploy U.S. Troops Out of Iraq
From the Senate Floor
senator feingold in his remarks says that s.amdt.2924:
"would require the president to begin safely redeploying u.s. troops from iraq within 90 days of enactment, and would require redeployment to be completed by june 30, 2008.the amendment fails 28 - 70. roll call vote #00345
at that point, with our troops safely out of iraq, funding for the war would be ended, with four narrow exceptions: providing security for u.s. government personnel and infrastructure; training the iraqi security forces (ISF); providing training and equipment to u.s. servicemen and women to ensure their safety and security; and, conducting “targeted operations, limited in duration and scope, against members of al qaeda and other affiliated international terrorist organizations.”"
thus giving us even more reasons to throw this cheap bush whore out of the senate next year.
