Explain to me again why this person won the election?
Out of touch.
Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman Monday tamped down expectations that the Iraq Study Group will provide a template to halt the deteriorating situation in Iraq, as he remains skeptical of what is expected to be its key recommendation — direct talks with Iran and Syria.I guess Joe didn't realize where a majority of the 9/11 hijackers came from...and I just just see Sunni-nations handling the situation in Shite controlled Iraq.
Baker, for several weeks now, has emphasized the wisdom of America talking to its foes as it tries to stabilize Iraq. "It’s not appeasement to talk to your enemies," he said on the ABC news program, "This Week."
But Lieberman doesn’t follow that logic.
"I am very skeptical of the value of having direct discussions with Iran and Syria about how to do better in Iraq," Lieberman said. "The notion that the road to peace or stability in Iraq is through Damascus or Tehran is puzzling to me."
Lieberman favors a role for the Sunni Arab countries, such as Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt "to help with the economic and political reconstruction of the country."
He said Vice President Dick Cheney was right to consult with Saudi Arabia and President Bush should meet with Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki in Jordan this week. "I think those are the right places to be because those are more natural allies for us," he said.
After all the lies and dirty tricks Lieberman did during the campaign, why does anyone take anything this man says seriously?
