Democrats try to stop Republican "amnesty for terrorists" program

The Senate Democrats are calling for the Iraq government not to release any prisoners who have killed or tried to kill American soldiers. The Republicans, I hear, are opposed to the resolution. Why? Apparently they have a soft spot for evil-doers who hate America and kill American soldiers.

Please tell your Senators to oppose giving amnesty to terrorists who kill American soldiers.

The Dems just issued the following press release:

Offer Senate resolution demanding reversal and retraction of reported Iraqi proposal

Washington, DC— Democrats today demanded an immediate retraction and reversal of the reported proposal that terrorists and insurgents who kill American soldiers in Iraq may be granted amnesty by the new Iraqi government.

“It is shocking that the Iraqi Prime Minister is reportedly considering granting amnesty to insurgents who have killed U.S. troops,” said Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid. “On the day we lost the 2,500th soldier in Iraq, the mere idea that this proposal may go forward is an insult to the brave men and women who have died in the name of Iraqi freedom. I call on President Bush to denounce this proposal immediately.”
