Senator Joseph I. Lieberman (D-CT) today told voters that the Iraq position held by challenger Ned Lamont could lead to more terror attacks like those foiled in the UK today, according to the New York Times.
An excerpt from the registration-restricted Times article follows:
“If we just pick up like Ned Lamont wants us to do, get out by a date certain, it will be taken as a tremendous victory by the same people who wanted to blow up these planes in this plot hatched in England,” Mr. Lieberman said at a campaign event at lunchtime in Waterbury, Conn. “It will strengthen them and they will strike again.”
