Graham Statement on Presidential Address to the Nation

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made the following statement on President Bush’s address to the nation. “Tonight was an opportunity to reflect upon the great job done by our men and women in uniform. It was also a time to rededicate ourselves to the job that lies ahead. I’m proud of the president and his leadership. I’m also tremendously grateful to the men and women in uniform who protected my freedom and of those of other Americans. “The war in Iraq is part of the overall war on terrorism. There is still much more to be done, more sacrifices to be made, and more money to be spent. Unfortunately, we may lose additional lives before we attain complete victory. “I applaud the President and the men and women in uniform who stood up to the oppression that existed in Iraq and disarmed a dictator. Tonight, we have much to be thankful for.”
