WASHINGTON — On May 10, a silver-haired member of Congress looked into the C-SPAN TV camera and said, "We have to stand up for the troops."
In a speech a few days later, that same congressman proclaimed, "Nothing less than protecting our troops is acceptable." The next morning, he repeated, "The best way to support our soldiers is to protect our soldiers."
"They took two months off while our troops are still fighting," he said in an interview.
"Why shouldn't I want to know what the other side is saying?"
