December 6, 2006 - MARKEY ON IRAQ STUDY GROUP REPORT

WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, Edward J. Markey (D-MA), a senior member of the House Homeland Security Committee, released the following statement on the publication of the Iraq Study Group Report:

“Last month, the voters threw the President’s Iraq policy overboard.  Today, the Iraq Study Group is throwing him a life raft.  The President appears unaware that his ‘stay the course’ Iraq policy is going under, and that it’s time to listen to some outside advice.

“I truly hope that the President comes to his senses and concedes that we must drastically change course in Iraq.”
