Weicker targets Bush, Lieberman and Iraq war

HARTFORD, Conn. -- Former Gov. Lowell P. Weicker Jr. said Monday that Sen. Joe Lieberman deserves a stiff challenge in next year's re-election campaign, though he said he would not take up a grudge match against the Democrat who ousted him from the U.S. Senate in 1988.

"I have seen this country propagandized into war," Weicker said. "It's now a second wave of propagandizing, with the president taking the stump, joined by persons like Senator Joe Lieberman."


Weicker said U.S. troops should be removed from Iraq in six months to a year.
"I support the troops. I do not support the commander in chief," he said.

Of Lieberman, he said: "I disagree 100 percent with the position he has taken on this war. The nation does not need a Democrat to second the president's policy."
