".... the goal is defeating the terrorists and making sure that Iraq is able to not become another Afghanistan, which would be the consequence if we were to cut and run"

As Kenny painted Democrats and a majority of Americans that want to get out of Iraq as "cut and runners," Mehlman conceded defeat in Afghanistan. Hasn't the GOP repeatedly pointed to that country as a victory in spreading Democracy to the Middle East? Thanks for letting us know it's a safe haven for terrorists now. I think there are a few Republicans not too happy with "the talking point action figure" right about now. <snark. I hope they know what snark is>
