From Senator Mitch McConnel with Wolf Blitzer talking about the ineffefctiveness of the Iraqi government
BLITZER: And if they're not going to do what they need to do, what happens then?So the Republican leader in the Senate is saying that the disposition of American troops overseas is in the hands of this Iraqi parlament. The attitude of the Republican leadership is to hand over the decision making regarding the disposition of our armed forces to the Iraqi government. With the current conservative administration and leadership the military forces of the United States of America are left jumping to the commands of the Iraqi government, coming or going at their command. How low this crowd can bring the mighty.
MCCONNELL: Well, the Iraqi government is a huge disappointment. Republicans overwhelmingly feel disappointed about the Iraqi government. I read just this week that a significant number of the Iraqi parliament want to vote to ask us to leave.
I want to assure you, Wolf, if they vote to ask us to leave, we'll be glad to comply with their request.
