Pelosi "This Is A Failure"

OK ... I will have the video from this up by this afternoon, sorry I did not record it. But when I heard it I almost drove off the road. From the transcript.

BLITZER: Are you not worried, though, that all the gains that have been achieved over the past year might be lost?
PELOSI: There haven't been gains, Wolf. The gains have not produced the desired effect, which is the reconciliation of Iraq. This is a failure. This is a failure. The troops have succeeded, God bless them. We owe them the greatest debt of gratitude for their sacrifice, their patriotism, and for their courage, and to their families, as well. But they deserve better than a policy of a war without end, a war that could be 20 years or longer. ... This is a disaster, and we cannot perpetuate it. We have to make decisions. And the loss of life will be nearly 4,000 of our troops, an average of 800 a year, tens of thousands injured, some of them permanently, blind, amputations, and the rest.
