Carol Shea-Porter Statement on the Possible Escalation of the War in Iraq

WASHINGTON DC- In anticipation of President Bush's pending announcement that he plans to increase the level of troops in Iraq, Carol Shea-Porter released the following statement:

"Sending more troops will not fix the quagmire in Iraq. But it will bring our troops and Iraqi families more fighting, more misery, more injuries, and more lost lives. It also will not end this administration's gross mismanagement of the war, which continues today."
