Ed Morrissey at Hot Air has posted a story that includes a Vets for Freedom Ad that provides further evidence that many in Washington got the liberation of Iraq wrong:
"Vets for Freedom continues their efforts to push for a successful conclusion to the war in Iraq with their latest ad, “Some in Washington”. The ad produces quotes from notables such as Harry Reid, Barack Obama, and Obama’s latest BFF and Iraq tripmate Chuck Hagel all declaring the surge a failure before it even started and the war lost. The veterans then introduce headlines from this year proclaiming how wrong these “leaders” turned out to be:" Link
Although Mr. Morrissey pointed out the obvious losers that fought against this war for political gain, I thought he left out a crucial body that contributed to the cause of defeatism:
"Some how I think you do this story a sizable disservice by not including the constant “loser” mentality that emulated from the House of Representatives and their pathetic “leader”—-Nancy Pelosi. How many times did that woman attempt to appease her anti-war constituents by allowing defeatist legislation come to the floor? If any one should be run out of Washington for aiding and abetting the enemy, Pelosi certainly fits the bill."

A friend from Captain's Quarters, (and now commenter at HA) slightly disagress with my analysis:
“If any one should be run out of Washington for aiding and abetting the enemy, Pelosi certainly fits the bill.”
Run out of Washington? The incompetent and corrupt traitor Pelosi deserves to be dragged off to Leavenworth in chains and put on trial for her utterly worthless life.
The French monarchs were effective state stewards compared to the Democrats we have in Congress and look what happened to them.
