CNN: Lugar Calls For A "New Direction" In Iraq

Just heard this on Anderson Cooper: Senator Richard Lugar (R-Indiana), a "pillar of the foreign policy establishment" as David Gergen termed him tonight, has called for a "new direction" in Iraq, including a redeployment of some U.S. troops out of the country.

CNN's Dana Bash says Lugar's call will give Repubs already wavering on the preznut's policy cover to turn on the war.

We'll see.

So many times we've heard how we'll get changes in the Iraq policy, but the only changes I've seen so far is when Bush finally added more troops earlier this year after years of saying there were already enough troops deployed.

But Lugar is an "establishment" Repub, so when he ditches on the war, it is a pretty big deal and it can't make the jokers in the White House and the VP's office too happy tonight.
