Video: Iraq veterans against the surge; Update: "Give it a chance," says ... James Baker

From the same lovely outfit that brought you Wes Clark’s notorious “Because of Iraq” ad comes this latest exercise in absolute moral authority. Your quote of the day: “If you support escalation, you don’t support the troops.”

We’ll see how big that “bipartisan majority in Congress” is when the anti-surge resolution finally comes to the floor. Meanwhile, are they so hard pressed to find vets willing to appear in these ads that they’re still using Joshua Lansdale?

Update: The Iraq Study Group, per the ad, opposed a surge of U.S. troops for purposes of combat operations. James Baker himself says it’s worth a shot. Publicly, at least.
