Fred Thompson Spoke to the VFW

Congressional Democrats are trying to divert attention from insulting our military leader in Iraq and pandering to the loony left by attacking Rush Limbaugh. He is one of the strongest supporters of our troops, yet Democrats claim he is not being strong enough. I wonder who General Petraeus and his troops think is most supportive? Fred Spoke to the VFW 8/21/07:
Greetings from Kansas City, Missouri! Fred-VFWThis morning I spoke to the 108th National Convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. It was an honor to meet with the men and women who are living symbols of our defense of freedom. It is because of their sacrifices that America is the bright, clear beacon of hope and freedom to those who don't possess it. It reminded me how much we owe to our men and women in uniform today, as well as those who have already shed blood for our freedom. We are in a long struggle with an enemy that will stop at nothing to achieve their goals. I have faith we will win the war we are now fighting on multiple fronts, because I have faith in our fighting men and women. We cannot predict the course our defense of freedom will follow, or the sacrifices that will be made ... though we know what the outcome must be. We can also be certain of some other things. That our defense of freedom is right. That the character of our troops is strong, and that we must continue to honor not only those who serve, but who have served. And that if we stand together, united as a people - as we have in times past - the cause of freedom will prevail.
