Today on the Senate floor, New York’s Senator Schumer slandered the American military when he stated:
The violence in Anbar has gone down despite the surge, not because of the surge. The inability of American soldiers to protect these tribes from al Qaeda, said to these tribes: “We have to fight al Qaeda ourselves.”
Asserting that the sacrifice of the American troops has been futile and their efforts in vain is an astonishing and vile statement for a sitting member of the United States Senate to make. Call the Hill switchboard at 202-225-3121 and ask for his office and make your sentiments known.
