Eagleburger: Talk of Iraq withdrawal comforts terrorists

Former Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger is not known as a particularly partisan Republican, and he supported Senator John McCain against George W. Bush in the 2000 presidential primary campaign.

So he's not speaking as a neocon flack when he warns that those who demand a pullout form Iraq are inadvertently aiding the terrorists.

After a January 5 White House meeting with President Bush and 12 other former secretaries of state and defense, Eagleburger told reporters, "Every time we talk about withdrawal you can see the ears of Osama and his friends perking up."
