The troops want out of Iraq

A poll conducted by Zogby International and LeMoyne College asked 944 U.S. military personnel serving in Iraq, "How long should U.S. troops stay in Iraq?"

Seventy-two percent said that U.S. troops should be pulled out within one year. Of those, 29 percent said we should withdraw "immediately."

In addition, a majority of the troops believe that the "insurgency" is made up mostly of discontented Iraqi Sunnis - not foreign terrorists, as Bush believes.

As Tom Tomorrow points out, if this poll is accurate, it virtually negates the constant refrain that the troops on the ground overwhelmingly support the war "because they see the progress the lying liberal media won't report."
