House Democratic Forum on Iraq
Speaker of the House-Designate has sent out an email to her caucus announcing a House Democratic Forum on Iraq [PDF] to be held Tuesday, December 5.
The featured panelists?
- Rep. Ike Skelton, Ranking Member, Armed Services Committee
- Rep. John Murtha, Ranking Member, Defense Appropriations Subcommittee
- Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski, former National Security Advisor
- Richard Holbrooke, former Ambassador to the United Nations
- Major General John Batiste, USA (ret.), former Commander of the First Infantry Division in Iraq.
One can only imagine what recommendations this group will come up with! Sure, most of them have opposed the war from the beginning and most have written op-eds against the war and/or the way the administration has conducted it. But I’m quite sure they’ll surprise us.
