REMARKS BY SENATOR CHARLES E. SCHUMER
September 5, 2007
...And let me be clear: the violence in Anbar has gone down despite the surge, not because of the surge.
The lack of protection for these tribes from al Qaeda made it clear to these tribes, "We have to fight al Qaeda ourselves." It wasn’t that the surge brought peace here. It was that the warlords had to create a temporary peace here on their own. And that is because there was no one else there protecting them.
And let me be clear, the violence in Anbar has gone down despite the surge, not because of the surge.A slight difference there. He blames al Qaeda In the doctored text of his remarks on his website, but Chuck-head claims that American Troops were unable to protect anyone in al Anbar in the C-Span2 clip of his actual statements on the Senate floor.
The inability of American soldiers to protect these tribes from al Qaeda said to these tribes we have to fight al Qaeda ourselves. It wasn't that the surge brought peace here. It was that the warlords took peace here, created a temporary peace here. And that is because there was no one else there protecting.
What a tool. He didn't even bother to make-up some story about how he was being misinterpreted like I thought he would; he just had someone put a false record of his statements on his Senate website. And, considering that the MSM isn't covering this, I doubt that most Americans will ever know about his original statements, let alone his obfuscation.
Chuck-head is a worthless dirt-bag. If you get a chance, feel free to let him know that at (202) 224-6542.
