Changing a Failed Policy in Iraq

The message of the new Ned Lamont ad launched today is sober and simple: Sen. Lieberman's support of the Bush-Cheney policy in Iraq has made us less safe, at a terribly high cost to our country.

And continuing to support politicians who support failed policies at home is one of the worst possible disservices to our heroic servicemembers and their families.

This election is serious. It's about changing course in Iraq, and changing failed policies at home and abroad. Bill Kristol, Dan Senor, President Bush, Dick Cheney, and Karl Rove all desperately want Sen. Lieberman to stay the Senate so he can continue to defend their failed policies.

Our son is one of the names read. We would give anything to have Jacob back. His entire family and friends were cheated of a wonderful man. We, his family and the American people were lied to. This war must end before one more person hears the terrible news that Jacob's father and myself heard. He is in our hearts but he should be able to be in our arms and daily life.
