Feingold: It's not about winning or losing Iraq...

...But whether we are winning or losing in the battle against Al Qaeda.
He argues that it would have made more sense to have others with Petraeus and Crocker to answer broader questions. Couldn't agree more.
Feingold argues that given that Petraeus says the key is to deal with Al Qaeda in Iraq. Why do our intelligence agencies say that the danger is getting worse not better? Petraeus responds that Bin Laden and Zawahiri say the central front in the war on terror is Iraq. Feingold responds that they have also said they want to bleed and bankrupt the United States and aren't we just doing that.
Crocker also says that everyone except for Sadr supports the U.S. presence in Iraq, to witch Feingold points that a majority of Iraqi Members of Parliament voted to oppose the U.S. presence... Snap.
