Reaction Varied to Iraq Study Group's Report

DECEMBER 6, 2006 - Posted at 10:11 a.m. CST

 

WASHINGTON - As one lawmaker puts it, "the stay-the-course strategy is officially dead."

That's how Democratic Congresswoman Jane Harman sees the report from the Iraq Study Group.  The bipartisan panel presented its recommendations today to President Bush, who calls it a "very tough assessment" of the situation.

Bush is promising to consider all proposals and "act in a timely fashion."  But a fellow Republican cautions against what he calls "setting arbitrary deadlines or negotiating with hostile governments."  Ohio Congressman John Boehner believes that won't accomplish victory.

The outgoing head of the House Armed Services Committee says the report should be used to "advise" the president.  Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter says the most important thing now is for the country to move forward on Iraq policy "with one voice."
