From K-Lo at the Corner:
Actually, it looks a like Rudy's trying to have it both ways here. He supports the increase in troops, but "even more importantly" he supports "the change in strategy."
STATEMENT FROM RUDY GIULIANI ON
PRESIDENT BUSH’S SPEECH ON IRAQ
"Success or failure in Iraq is not a matter of partisan politics but a matter of national security. All Americans should be hoping, praying and offering constructive advice for the success of our troops in Iraq and for those Iraqis seeking to create a stable and decent government. In that spirit, I support the President’s increase in troops. Even more importantly – I support the change in strategy – the focus on security and the emphasis on a political and economic solution as being even more important than a military solution.
I would add to it a heavy emphasis on measuring results and having the flexibility of adapting our strategy to make certain we restore security as quickly as possible.
We must not wait for a year or more to measure the success of our strategy but must develop a system to do so monthly weekly even daily so we give our troops the necessary support to succeed."
