Boxer needs to climb off soapbox

Once again Sen. Barbara Boxer appeared as an inquisitor at the hearing regarding Iraq. Instead of asking a single question, she jumped into her usual partisan left wing rant, closely following moveon.org's prescribed talking points. When not being accusatory, she is making false claims, careful not to allow time for the witnesses to answer or refute.

We would be better served had she asked questions that help clarify what is a confusing and difficult situation, not getting face time on TV to spout her opinion. We know where she stands; we want to know where the expert on the ground stands.
