During an interview on MSNBC News Thursday, Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) expressed his disappointment with the lack of timelines in the Iraq War funding bill, but held back from bashing his fellow senators.

"I'm not just taking aim at Democrats," Feingold said. "This is George Bush's war."

"This is no time to back off," insisted Feingold. "We need to get back on track to end this war, because the American people want that."

In response to a question about whether there might be more support for imposing timelines next September, he answered, "You know what's going to happen in September? They'll bring General Petraeus back and he'll say just give me to the end of the year... A thousand more troops will lose their lives.... This should not wait till September."
