Subject:  Soldiers Speak: Will Bush Listen? Date:  2/28/2006  8:57 AM

In today's NYT column by Nicholas Kristoff, he reveals a Zogby poll about to be released...a poll of U.S. soldiers in Iraq:

23% back Bush's position to stay as long as necessary.
72% said troops should be pulled out within one year
Of that 72%, 29% said we should withdraw immediately.

So, this puts to bed the lie that the media is misconstruing what is going on over there...that things are really brighter than they appear.

When the troops on the ground say things suck, then it is time to listen. Unless of course, one views 72% of U.S. troops as traitors.
