Kerry: 'Let Iraqis Stand Up for Iraq'
Nov. 19, 2005 ? Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., says U.S. troops do not necessarily need to be pulled out of Iraq right away, as a senior Democrat suggested this week, but they need more leadership from the Bush administration.

"What we need is a little more commander-in-chief, and a little less campaigner-in-chief," Kerry said in an exclusive interview on "Good Morning America Weekend Edition."
The question of whether or not troops should be withdrawn from Iraq moved to the front burner Thursday when Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., called for all the troops to be withdrawn immediately ? a call that drew charges of recklessness from the Bush administration. Vice President **** Cheney called Murtha's press conference "reprehensible."

Members of the House of Representatives debated late into Friday night and voted down a resolution to pull the troops out of Iraq by 403-3. Although most Democrats did not support Murtha's call, Kerry, who lost the 2004 presidential election to Bush, said Murtha did not deserve to be called names like "coward" by allies of the administration.

"It's just the attack politics, and people are sick and tired of it," Kerry said. "You don't call John Murtha a coward. ? I mean, **** Cheney had five deferments in a row in Vietnam, when John Murtha went to serve."

Murtha, Kerry said, has simply added to the debate. Kerry said the Bush administration needs to outline a clear plan about what benchmarks must be reached in order to bring the troops home.

"You can differ on the policies, and we should talk about the policy," Kerry said. "We need to have the debate and figure out how we bring our troops home in a responsible way. John Murtha is really just adding to the debate in a personal way."

Kerry said the top U.S. commander in Iraq, Gen. George Casey, sent a plan to the Pentagon that outlined a timetable for withdrawal. The president of Iraq also said he had a plan to bring home 50,000 troops by Christmas ? something Kerry said Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld also had previously mentioned.

Kerry added that the Bush administration was wrong to suggest that calling for a plan to bring the troops home will endanger the troops.
