The Iraq Study Group

The Iraq Study Group says Iraq is "grave and deteriorating." The President's new Defense Secretary says "we're not winning." The time has come for change in Iraq. The President has the ball in his court. The Iraq Study Group did a great service to our troops and to our country. Their report is an authoritative look at the deteriorating conditions in Iraq that put our troops at risk and a strong case for the President to change his policy.

The Study Group's findings mirror what the American people said last month: there must be immediate change in Iraq, and we should begin the phased redeployment of our combat troops.

The ball is in the President's court. He must bring the country together and change course in Iraq. He will find Congress ready and willing to work with him if he does. The troops have given so much. The time has come for President Bush to bring the country together behind a new course in Iraq.
