GOP discontent over Iraq

Orlando area Rep. Rick Keller, a generally reliable Republican voice, took to the House floor today to register his opposition to President Bush's plan for a troop "surge."

Saying he believed the president's motives were "pure and well meaning," Keller said he would have agreed with him three years ago.

"However, at this late stage, interjecting more young American troops into the crossfire of an Iraqi civil war is simply not the right approach," Keller said. "We're not going to solve an Iraqi political problem with an American military solution."
