Draft Shaheen Committee Chairman Kathy Sullivan issued the following statement on Senator John E. Sununu's support of a filibuster which killed a bipartisan bill that would have started withdrawing American troops from Iraq:
"Once again, John E. Sununu has put his political support of George W. Bush ahead of New Hampshire and his constituents. In 2006, the people of our state sent a clear message to congress that it was time to change course, and time for our troops to start to come home. John E. Sununu's stubborn support of the Bush administration's failed policies shows that he has no interest in demanding accountability from the Bush administration, and no interest in getting our troops out from the middle of a civil war. Our troops are doing their job; why won't John E. Sununu do his?"
