Al Qaeda's US Allies Acknowledge 'Unproductive Year,' Will Redeploy

From the Politico via the Drudge Report:
After a series of legislative defeats in 2007 that saw the year end with more U.S. troops in Iraq than when it began, a coalition of anti-war groups is backing away from its multimillion-dollar drive to cut funding for the war and force Congress to pass timelines for bringing U.S. troops home.

In recognition of hard political reality, the groups instead will lower their sights and push for legislation to prevent President Bush from entering into a long-term agreement with the Iraqi government that could keep significant numbers of troops in Iraq for years to come.
The revised goal is actually sensible, since responsible members of Congress should be involved in long range international agreements.

On the other hand, a sudden attack of common sense isn't enough to excuse the years of useful idiocy on the part of these antiwar groups that, without question, encouraged terrorist leaders, thereby contributing to US casualties, which were then used to grief-pimp opposition to the war.
