Statement of Dodd Campaign About the Accuracy of General Petraeus' Report

WASHINGTON - Today, Dodd Campaign spokeswoman Colleen Flanagan released the following statement on the accuracy of General Petraeus' report:

"The fact that there are questions about General Petraeus' report is not surprising given that it was brought to you by this White House. In contrast, independent report after report indicates that the whack-a-mole strategy has made this the bloodiest summer of the war. And by the General's admission, the so-called surge has not achieved its goal of political progress. But even more fundamentally, debating the merits of a tactic when the strategy that underlies it is failed is nothing more than a distraction from the work that needs to be done to bring this war to a close."
