Kerryism of the Day

[7] without some kind of international agreement

[8] as to how we're proceeding

Yes, I would. That's my aim. You bet I would. I can't tell you I will. But if we can't achieve a free election in four years, and if we can't achieve some kind of progress that sufficiently brings the Iraqi people out of the shadows and into the open to invest in their own future in that period of time, we're in trouble. And I am not for just, in a vacuum, putting a lot more American troops in there without some kind of international agreement as to how we're proceeding.
