“Duty, Honor … Reelection?” - A Veteran of Iraq Speaks Out About Congress and the Call for Immediate Withdrawal

Alex Gallo is my friend. He is also a very thoughtful and well-informed veteran of Iraq, a graduate of West Point, and a current student at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. In an Op-Ed piece in the National Review Online, entitledDuty, Honor … Reelection? Conduct unbecoming senators,” he speaks forcefully and persuasively in challenging members of Congress to think through the strategic and moral implications of their call for the immediate withdrawal of our troops from Iraq.

No matter where you stand on the war and the issue of a timetable for withdrawal, Mr. Gallo’s words are worth reading and heeding.
