Warner Defects on Bush's Iraq Plans

The biggest name yet in the GOP defections from President Bush's Iraq policies. Sen John Warner (R-VA), and the GOP's dean of defense issues in Congress for a generation, is calling for a troop withdrawal. From Reuters:

Virginia Sen. John Warner said Bush should "announce on the 15th (of September) that in consultation with our senior military commanders he has decided to initiate the the first step in a withdrawal of our forces."

Sen Warner says the withdrawal would force Iraq to take steps toward political reconciliation. (Reuters)
