“The Iraq Study Group has provided an important opportunity for the Administration to forge a bi-partisan consensus around a new way forward in Iraq. I look forward to reviewing all of the Iraq Study Groups recommendations. The report is an acknowledgment that there will be no military solution in Iraq. It will require a political solution arrived at through sustained Iraqi and region-wide diplomacy and engagement.
“The President and Congress now must work together to frame a new policy that will allow the U.S. to leave Iraq and the Iraqi people to make their own decisions as to their future.”
