Bob Kelleher on War & Peace

Republican challenger


It's time to transfer control to the Iraqi government

Bob retired from the Army as a full Colonel. His grandson was wounded in Iraq. Another of Bob's grandsons is in the active duty Air Force.

He therefore is committed to supporting our troops in the field. He feels that it is time, however, for the United States to transfer control of Iraqi security to the Iraqi government.

Invading Iraq means we kill millions of women and children

[At the second debate, we were] asked "Do you favor invasion of Iraq?" Baucus and Taylor both said they had the utmost confidence "in our president--he is doing a great job" and whatever he did was o.k. with them. Kelleher said an invasion meant "we will kill a couple of million women and children with our smart bombs and a few Iraqi soldiers--if we can find them--and when we get Saddam holed up in his concrete bunker--just like Hitler--he will stick his pistol in his mouth and pull the trigger."
