    When will they attack this guy..

    Democrats chose Joe Sestak, a former Navy vice admiral who is challenging Republican Rep. Curt Weldon (news, bio, voting record) in a competitive race outside Philadelphia, to deliver their party's response to the president. Sestak argued for "a new direction for America's security."

    He said it is time for the U.S. mission in Iraq to end.

    "We must begin a phased redeployment of our forces so that we are prepared to face the security challenges we have worldwide," he said.

    The nation's safety looms as a major issue in the midterm elections Nov. 7, particularly after last week's news of a foiled plot in Britain to blow up jetliners over the Atlantic. Both Republicans and Democrats are maneuvering for the political advantage in an election in which control of Congress is at stake.

    Democrats have been accusing the Bush administration of trying to ignite fear among Americans and gain political points by claiming they alone can keep them safe. Republicans argue that Democrats are weak on national security.

    With American deaths in Iraq over 2,600, the U.S. public growing more weary of the war, and even some troops frustrated with the pace of progress, Democrats have been increasingly vocal about what they say is the lack of a plan for success in Iraq and the need for a timetable for bringing U.S. forces home.

    Sestak said ending the U.S. presence in Iraq would free up money and energy to concentrate on other dangers, such as nuclear programs in North Korea and Iran and bolstering homeland security protections. Two days of spending in Iraq would pay for screening all air cargo on passenger planes, while five days of Iraq costs would fund the screening of all cargo coming into the nation's ports, he said.

    Why does the ex-Navy Vice-Admiral want to embolden the enemy? Does he hate freedom?
