A Dialogue for the September 12th World

A modicum of Reason : Iraq Pull-out should be SECRET

At least Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR) has a brain. Don’t tell our enemies exactly what they want to know.

Democrat Proposes Making Withdrawal Date Secret

In one of the more unusual proposals to emerge in the Senate debate on Iraq withdrawal, Sen. Mark Pryor wants to keep any plans for bringing troops home a secret.

The Arkansas Democrat is a key holdout on his party’s proposal to approve $122 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan while setting a goal of March 31, 2008, for winding up military operations in Iraq. Unlike the plan’s Republican opponents, Pryor wants a withdrawal deadline of some kind. He just doesn’t want anyone outside the White House, Congress and the Iraqi government to know what it is.

I still disagree with him, but at least his proposal is moderately palatable.
