Crapo says Iraq surge ‘remains best option’

As the U.S. Senate prepares for all-night debate on U.S. troops in Iraq, Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo says it’s “a good opportunity for discussion, but the timetable for decision-making should remain the same.” In a news release issued this afternoon, Crapo said he’s standing by President Bush.

“The President’s plan has shown mixed results since the full complement of forces arrived in Iraq in June, but it is very important to allow the surge time to demonstrate results,” Crapo said. “Congress agreed to wait until September to evaluate the effectiveness of the recent troop surge.”
