Kristol To Congress: ‘Do Nothing’ On Iraq

Last week, Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol advised war critics to shut up. “It’s so irresponsible that they can’t be quiet for six or nine months.”

This morning on Fox News, he had a new Iraq recommendation for Congress: do nothing.

Kristol noted an op-ed by Sen. John Warner (R-VA) which asked, “What do [Bush supporters] want us to do in the Senate? Do nothing?” Kristol answered, “Absolutely right. Absolutely right. Support the troops. Appropriate the funds.”

KRISTOL: This is the Congress at its worst. John Warner does a great puff piece, my senator from Virginia, what do they want us to do in the Senate? Do nothing? Absolutely right. Absolutely right. Support the troops. Appropriate the funds. Let Petraeus have a chance to win this war. Don’t pass a meaningless resolution that Joe Lieberman said is non-binding, but symbolically symbolically, it can only encourage our enemies.
