Brownback Backs Up On Iraq

Wednesday, January 10, 2007  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Last month Senator Brownback was on the record supporting a troop increase in Iraq if the military wanted the troops..

Today the senator announced his opposition to the surge.:

“I do not believe that sending more troops to Iraq is the answer,” Brownback said while traveling in Iraq. “Iraq requires a political rather than a military solution.”

Brownback had previously supported a short-term surge of troops if it could help achieve long-term political stability, which the Bush Administration has said it hopes a troop surge will help achieve.

This is, at best, confusing.

And it is most definitely not the way to the Republican nomination.  I hope the senator will reconsider.
