Sen. Joe Lieberman http://empirezone.blogs.nytimes.com/?p=536 target=_blank>today (via Hotline on Call):

If we just pick up like Ned Lamont wants us to do, get out [of Iraq] by a date certain, it will be taken as a tremendous victory by the same people who wanted to blow up these planes in this plot hatched in England…. It will strengthen them and they will strike again….

"I'm worried that too many people, both in politics and out, don't appreciate the seriousness of the threat to American security and the evil of the enemy that faces us - more evil, or as evil, as Nazism and probably more dangerous than the Soviet Communists we fought during the long Cold War

[T]hese terrorists certainly don't distinguish based on our party affiliation? They want to kill any and all of us.

I'm sure Harry Reid and all the rest who have heartily endorsed "Bring Them Home" Lamont won't be happy with Lieberman. Good for Joe.
