Dodd calls defense secretary's comments irresponsible

By The Associated Press, By The Associated Press January 28, 2007
U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd on Sunday defended the right of Congress to oppose a troop buildup in Iraq and called Defense Secretary Robert Gates' criticism of lawmakers dangerous and irresponsible.
Speaking on CNN's "Late Edition", Dodd, D-Conn., blasted Gates for saying that a resolution opposing an escalation of forces would embolden the nation's enemies and advisories.
The Democratic-controlled Senate plans to begin debate this week on a nonbinding resolution declaring that Bush's proposal to send 21,500 more troops to Baghdad and Anbar province is "not in the national interest."
"I voted to confirm (Gates)," Dodd said. "But that's a very dangerous thing to be suggesting that the United States Congress has no business suggesting an alternative here, or recommending a course of action different from the president of the United States. For us not to do that would be the height of irresponsibility if that was the feeling in Congress.".........
