Oregon Congressman Joins Operation Yellow Elephant!
Rep. David Wu (D-OR) visited wounded servicemembers at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland (just outside Washington, D.C.). Money quote:
WASHINGTON -- As Rep. David Wu visited wounded soldiers in the National Naval Medical Center this week, he thought about President Bush considering a move to send more troops to Iraq.
Wu fears the White House will quietly roll out the "temporary surge" over the holidays, as if it were a company marketing a new product.
"We need to focus on whether we would choose to send our own son or daughter, our own wife or our own husband off for a temporary surge in Iraq," said Wu, D-Ore. "If we wouldn't do that, then should we permit this administration to roll out a potential product like that?"
Please join us in welcoming Congressman David Wu to Operation Yellow Elephant!
