Democrats unveil new security platform

Washington Post (via Daily Kos):

WASHINGTON — Eyeing House and Senate elections this fall, Democrats are stepping up their effort to cut into the public perception that Republicans are stronger on national security.

Congressional Democrats vow to provide U.S. agents with the resources to hunt down Osama bin Laden and ensure a “responsible redeployment of U.S. forces” from Iraq in 2006 in a national security policy statement House and Senate Democratic leaders were announcing Wednesday.

At first glance it looks good, although the full plan won’t be unveiled for another few hours at the time I’m writing this. It highlights Republican failures in offering any real homeland security, from Osama to the nation’s ports, without committing them to any losing iniatives like a total Iraq pullout.

My only real thought: Now they do this? Where the heck was this kind of a plan in 2004?
