Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) has been getting a lot of questions on Iraq at his listening sessions. In response to a constituent at a session in Clinton, Feingold said he will question British PM Tony Blair on the Downing Street memo and prewar intelligence at an upcoming breakfast meeting.

During the session, Feingold called the war an "amazing mess. … If you want to get depressed, you should read the appallingly flippant answers" that Bush administration officials gave during Senate hearings before the war.

The answers generally boiled down to the war would be a cakewalk, Feingold said.

And, he said, that two months after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the Bush administration released a list of two dozen countries it said al-Qaida operated in, but Iraq was not listed.
