    “I, for one, am at the end of my rope when it comes to supporting a policy that has our soldiers patrolling the same streets in the same way, being blown up by the same bombs day after day. That is absurd. It may even be criminal.â€


    “I have concluded that we are employing strategies that are needlessly getting kids killed.â€


    “Then we were back in Washington for the lame-duck session,and I woke up one morning and turned on the news and another 10 soldiers had been killed. And I went from steaming to boiled. And then I went to the floor.â€


    “Many things have been attributed to George Bush, but I do not believe him to be a liar. He is not guilty of perfidy, but I do believe he is guilty of believing bad intelligence and giving us the same. I can’t tell you how devastated I was to learn that in fact we were not going to find weapons of mass destruction.â€
