Bipartisan Support for Withdrawal Deadline - Not!

If you haven't heard about this yet, you probably will soon. A bipartisan group of legislators has signed a letter in which they promise to vote against funding U.S. troops in Iraq, unless deadlines for surrender (oops: make that withdrawal) are included in the bill.

The group is bipartisan, all right. Not only does it promote withdrawal from Iraq, but another blogger noticed a Republican among the seventy signers: Ron Paul. Reviewing the facts, I see opposition to the Bush administration's policies, and at least one Republican in the mix.

Yep, that's bipartisan, as the term is used these day.

I see that there are three Minnesota names among the signers:
  • Betty McCollum
  • Jim Oberstar
  • Keith Ellison
There's more about this affair in They Call This Bipartisanship?

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
