Iraq will be the overwhelming priority for the Senate Armed Services Committee in the new Democrat-controlled Congress, its incoming chairman, Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan, said Monday.But should congress even be allowed to know anything about ThatIraqiThingiePooh????
A phased redeployment from Iraq, beginning within four to six months, is Levin’s top priority.
He also wants the committee to look at rebuilding the readiness of ground units; review progress in Afghanistan; and study the overall structure of the force to determine if the military has the size, organization and equipment for current and possible future conflicts.
Beyond Iraq, Levin said he wants the committee to do more oversight of defense programs to determine how the Bush administration has managed taxpayer dollars and to ensure everything being done is legal.
He wants more attention given to nuclear and especially non-nuclear proliferation programs, and wants to take a closer look at overhauling the weapons acquisition process, Pentagon-planned reforms for civilian personnel and a seemingly never-ending restructuring of military financial systems, he said.
[ cf Senate defense panel to focus on Iraq, Levin says ]
OH MY GOD!!!!! If we allow Congress To KNOW about ThatIraqiThingiePooh!!!! Then Congress would know that there are american troops In Iraq!!! And IF Congress KNOWS that there are troops in Iraq!!!! Then The Enemy, The Democratics In Congress, will KNOW that there are american troops in Iraq!!!!!
Can We REALLY allow that???
All Hail Great Leader!!!! For he has been able to protect americans from the knowledge that there are american troops in Iraq by keeping that knowledge out of congress, and therefore out of the concern of americans about where our troops may be deployed.
