Bob Schaffer on War & Peace
Senate challenger 2008; previously Republican Representative (CO-4)
SCHAFFER: Hard to say. If they are, I hope that it's not involved in tactical involvement on a day-to-day basis, but strategic. But I'd hoped that we'd have American troops out even sooner. That definition you read, was before there was a clear indication that the surge has worked. I am optimistic, however, that we are achieving those objectives right now.
Q: [to Udall]: A year ago you said that the surge was a tragic mistake. Were you wrong?
UDALL: It's time to leave Iraq. It's time to leave Iraq responsibly.
Q: Were you wrong on the surge?
UDALL: The surge has helped. There are other factors in Iraq that have been helpful.
