The 11 Republicans who confronted President Bush on Tuesday, and promised their continued support for a policy they know is disastrous, have committed an act of indescribable hyprocisy and shame.

On an issue of high honor involving life and death for thousands of American troops, they show the president their poll numbers and promise the president they will again vote for an escalation they know is wrong.

Someday Americans killed in action may reach 4,000 and Americans wounded in action may reach 30,000.

Perhaps the 11 House Republicans will return to the White House and read the president their poll numbers again.

Heroes, they are not. The tragedy in Iraq continues and they vote for it, again.
