Joseph at Martini Republic reports that Russ Feingold held “a very intimate press conference in Los Angeles today.” (hmmm… guess I missed it–glad you were there Joseph!)
Senator Russ Feingold stated that his plan for leaving Iraq is not specifically a plan; it’s more of a boilerplate for discussion. His date is not a firm date; it’s a suggestion, a target. With his proposal for bringing our troops home, launched just a week ago, he wishes to let the Democratic Party know that “It’s OK to talk about the war.”
“Frankly, I didn’t want to pick a date,” Sen. Feingold told media gathered at the Biltmore before a Town Hall LA luncheon. He says the date of December 31 was suggested by Australian commander Peter Cosgrove.
