Lieberman Opposes Iraq Pullout Leaving Now Would Show `Weakness,' He Says

By DAVID LIGHTMAN Washington Bureau Chief December 4 2006WASHINGTON -- Despite mounting pressure from both parties for a change in direction in Iraq, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, D-Conn., said Sunday that withdrawing American forces would be a "statement of weakness.""In the end, there has to be an Iraqi political settlement," Lieberman told CBS' "Face the Nation," "but they can't do it without security. And they can't achieve security if we begin to withdraw."Lieberman's comments came on a day when most lawmakers were talking in more conciliatory tones. The Iraq Study Commission report, to be issued Wednesday, is expected to suggest alternatives to current U.S. policy in Iraq.National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley defended administration policy Sunday, appearing on talk shows and saying that "we have not failed in Iraq." "We will fail in Iraq if we pull out our troops before we're in a position to help the Iraqis succeed," Hadley said.At the same time, he said, "The president understands that we need to have a way forward in Iraq that is more successful."Lieberman was tougher, saying that if the U.S. pulls out, "That's the signal to everybody I've talked to that the sectarian violence will get worse and the government will collapse."The senator, who won re-election last month as an independent, also criticized American lawmakers who talk about Iraq as a failed mission.There is "too little talk about the consequences of failure, which I believe would be disastrous to us," he said. "I mean, this is a war on terrorism we're involved in. Iraq is a battlefield. It's a conflict between freedom and totalitarianism, between moderation and extremism.".............
