Reid and Pelosi are now saying the Washington Post story Kathryn linked to this moring regarding a troop withdrawl time table isn’t true. The WaPo writer, Jonathan Weisman, is standing by his article:
That is very interesting, since I was told in no uncertain terms by one of her aides that the withdrawal dates had to go, since they could not stand by language Bush would never sign. That was cofirmed by another senior leadership aide and two members of the leadership.
I can say with no reluctance whatsoever that we stand by the story. By the way, nobody has contacted me about it. That should tell you a lot.
