Carper Responds to Bush Speech on Iraq

WILMINGTON, DE – Senator Tom Carper issued the following response to President Bush’s speech this evening on Iraq: “I agree with the President that Saddam Hussein is a threat not only to the United States, but also to his neighbors, to the community of nations and our global order, as well as to many of his own people,” Carper said. “War can – and often does – enact a most terrible price, and should be entered into as a last resort. So -the decision we face this week is not one that I take lightly,” Carper said.
