Ricardo Sanchez, the top commander in Iraq shortly after the fall of Baghdad, said this week that he supports Democratic legislation that calls for most troops to come home within a year. His comments come as welcome ammunition for the Democratic-controlled Congress in its standoff with the White House on war spending. This month, the House passed a $50billion bill that would pay for combat operations but sets the goal that combat end by Dec. 15, 2008. The White House threatened to veto the measure, and Senate Republicans blocked it from passing. The Pentagon on Tuesday said as many as 200,000 civilian employees and contractors will begin receiving layoff warnings by Christmas unless Congress approves a war-spending bill that President Bush will sign. “The improvements in security produced by the courage and blood of our troops have not been matched by a willingness on the part of Iraqi leaders to make the hard choices necessary to bring peace to their country,” Sanchez said in remarks to be aired Saturday for the weekly Democratic radio address.

Sanchez added that the House bill “makes the proper preparation of our deploying troops a priority and requires the type of shift in their mission that will allow their numbers to be reduced substantially.”last_img read more
