Iraq: Joe vs. Joe

From today's Connecticut Post:

Lieberman stresses... that he remains convinced toppling Saddam Hussein's regime was "the right decision" but also points out his criticisms of the conduct of the war. In particular, he believes more troops were needed at the start of the war. He also stresses the need to work toward a successful and speedy conclusion.

Criticisms of Bush's Iraq policy? Stressing the need for a speedy conclusion? Joe really has lost the plot, not just with Iraq, but with his own recent statements.

This was Joe in March 2005 on Bush's Iraq policy:

But [Lieberman] is unapologetic about his defense of Bush’s Iraq policy, saying, “Bottom line, I think Bush has it right.” When I asked if he was becoming a neoconservative, Lieberman smiled and said, “No, but some of my best friends are neocons.”

And was Joe in March 2006 on the need for a speedy conclusion to the war:

We're talking about 2006, 7, 8... that's three years. And I believe that a lot of very good things can happen in three years in Iraq that ideally would allow us to remove every American soldier who's there today.
