Pelosi Says Ending Iraq War is Top Priority

House Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sure got the message on election day. In a Huffington Post column yesterday, Pelosi makes it clear that ending the war in Iraq is her top priority.

An excerpt:
"I told my colleagues yesterday that the biggest ethical issue facing our country for the past three and a half years is the war in Iraq.

"This unnecessary pre-emptive war has come at great cost. Nearly 2,900 of our brave troops have lost their lives and more than 21,000 more have suffered lasting wounds. Since the war began, Congress has appropriated more than $350 billion, and the United States has suffered devastating damage to our reputation in the eyes of the world."
