Nelson denounces withdrawal deadlines
(NET Radio) - Nelson has stated his support for a so-called soft date for troop withdrawals. The Senate version of the bill calls for a phased withdrawal of U-S troops, with a nonbinding goal to have most troops out of the country by the end of March 2008. The House version's deadline would be in September of 2008, and would be binding. In a news conference Thursday morning, Nelson said Congress and the White House should not be setting dates for withdrawal. © Copyright 2018, NET Radio
