Iraq surge a failure, top Democrats tell Bush
Jun 13 04:38 PM US/Eastern
Top US congressional Democrats bluntly told President George W. Bush Wednesday that his Iraq troop "surge" policy was a failure.
Senate Majority leader Harry Reid and House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi challenged the president over Iraq by sending him a letter, ahead of a White House meeting later on Wednesday.
"As many had forseen, the escalation has failed to produce the intended results," the two leaders wrote.
"The increase in US forces has had little impact in curbing the violence or fostering political reconciliation.
"It has not enhanced Americas national security. The unsettling reality is that instances of violence against Iraqis remain high and attacks on US forces have increased.
"In fact, the last two months of the war were the deadliest to date for US troops.
The letter appeared to preview a fresh showdown over Iraq between anti-war Democrats and the president, just a few weeks after Bush forced his foes to strip troop withdrawal timelines from a 100 billion dollar emergency war budget.
It also came a few days after the US military mourned its 3,500th soldier killed in action in Iraq.
Pelosi and Reid told Bush in the letter that they planned to send him new legislation to "limit the US mission in Iraq, begin the phased redeployment of US forces, and bring the war to a responsible end."
On Tuesday, Reid said that Senate Democrats would attach troop withdrawal deadlines to a Defense Department Authorization bill, due to be debated within weeks.
The next critical point in the showdown between Bush and Congress over Iraq is expected in September, when US commander in Iraq David Petraeus is due to report on progress in the strategy to "surge" up to 30,000 more US troops into the war-ravaged nation.
Even senior Republicans have said they expected the president will have little choice but to make adjustments in the Iraq strategy, once the report is made public.

First off being on the Side of the Republicans I have to say that this constant giving up to the Insurgents is getting so old, and the Democrats keep on doing this, I wonder why!!
To Ultimately give up, throw your weapons down and try to walk away is going to get your people killed and your weapons collected from the ground where you threw them down, and used against you and anyone that you try to send in to say that you have given up!!
JUST BECAUSE THE DEMOCRAT'S HAVE GIVEN UP DOESN'T MEAN THAT THE INSURGENTS HAVE GIVEN UP, IN FACT THAT WILL GIVE THEM FUEL TO THEIR FIRE AND THEY WILL TRY TO KILL MORE, AFTER ALL THEY TAKE DEFENSELESS MEN, AND CUT THEIR HEADS OFF ON TELEVISION TO SHOW HOW STRONG THEY ARE!!
The Pelosi, & Reid have got to be the most ignorant leaders of the Democratic Party, During a Conflict!! It is awful, Just how can people trust their leadership??
