The Fringe: The Senate’s Kos Caucus Votes for Cut-and-Run
The Senate rejected a call for the withdrawal of U.S. combat forces from Iraq by year’s end on Thursday as Congress erupted in impassioned, election-year debate over a conflict that now has claimed the lives of 2,500 American troops.
The vote was 93-6 to shelve the proposal, which would have allowed “only forces that are critical to completing the mission of standing up Iraqi security forces” to remain in 2007.
The KosCaucus: Boxer, Byrd, Feingold, Harkin, Kerry and Kennedy. (Rockefeller diod not vote.)
