Relatives of military men are ever more loudly demanding that troops be withdrawn from the guerrilla war in Iraq.

By James P. Tucker Jr.

Hundreds of people representing about 1,000 military families stormed the Capitol on Sept. 9 to demand that the United States abandon its occupation of Iraq.

There was no evidence that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction or links to the 9-11 terrorist attacks when President Bush put American servicemen in harms way, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) told a spillover crowd in a large hearing room.

Congressmen hesitate to openly oppose the invasion, she said, for fear of being called unpatriotic.

Other congressmen attending to show support included Reps. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) and John Conyers (D-Mich.).
