CNN Highlights Boehner Video Thanking Troops, Surge for Progress in Iraq
Yesterday, CNN’s Situation Room highlighted a web video released by Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) which credited our troops with the success of the surge in Iraq. CNN also offered a preview of an address Leader Boehner will deliver at the American Legion National Convention later today at 2:10pm EST, as Wolf Blitzer noted: “President Obama won't be the only one publicly addressing this milestone in Iraq tomorrow. Republicans will have a voice as well. The House Minority Leader John Boehner is planning a major speech ahead of the President's.”
As Congressman Boehner noted in an op-ed in Human Events last week:
The American people owe a debt of gratitude to the courage and sacrifice of our troops for all they have done to advance freedom abroad and strengthen our security here at home.
