[color:blue]Lincoln, NE. -- A top Republican congressman has broken from his party in the final days of his House career, saying he believes the U.S. military assault on Iraq was unjustified and the situation there has deteriorated into "a dangerous, costly mess."<br><br>"I've reached the conclusion, retrospectively, now that the inadequate intelligence and faulty conclusions are being revealed, that all things being considered, it was a mistake to launch that military action," Rep. Doug Bereuter wrote in a letter to his constituents.<br><br>"Left unresolved for now is whether intelligence was intentionally misconstrued to justify military action," he said.<br><br>Bereuter is a senior member of the House International Relations Committee and vice chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. He is stepping down after 13 terms to become the president of the Asia Foundation effective September 1.<br></font color=blue><br><br>It's a wire story.<br><br>

I really don't get why Republican can't disagree with the war and vice versa without being completely 'disassociated' from your party...<br><br>[color:white]God speed, mikeb. Go drive your Boxster in the big Autobahn in the sky...</font color=white>
Well, that's just one opinion in over 200 Republican members of the house. <br><br>In the Republican conference, you will find:<br><br>1.) Christian conservatives<br><br>2.) Liberals that vote with the Democrats a lot of the time<br><br>3.) Libertarians<br><br>4.) Moderates<br><br>5.) Pro-war Republicans<br><br>6.) Anti-war Republicans<br><br>It's just when one of the liberal Republicans speaks out against the president's policies does it make front page news. <br><br>It's all over the place, no big surprise to me. Same with the other side....for instance, there are pro-gun NRA supporters in the Democratic party in the House. <br><br><br>
