Retired General and Former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Wesley K. Clark endorsed the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans' Health, and Iraq Accountability Act today saying:
“House Democrats have offered a responsible approach that protects our Armed Forces, the troops and their families, and encourages both the Iraqis and the Bush Administration to work more effectively to salvage some success in ending what has been a tragically mistaken and failing mission. This conflict must be resolved politically – military efforts alone are insufficient — and this legislation strongly promotes that political solution. This legislation is the product of the kind of responsible legislative leadership that the American people voted for in 2006, and I wholeheartedly support this bill.”
The House Appropriations Committee will have a full committee markup of the bill on Thursday at 9:00AM. You will be able to watch it live via webcast on their web site.
