Feingold suggests deadline for Iraq withdrawal
UPDATE: Brad takes issue with the characterization of Feingold's statement as "setting a deadline," saying that "by his own admission, he is not proposing a hard deadline."
Hmm... I don't know. Feingold does use the word "deadline" ("A deadline will help us a great deal to stabilize the situation in Iraq.") However, he also indicates that the deadline is somewhat flexible, saying "It's a target date ... If we believe we need a little more time we may have to continue [in Iraq]."
So there you have it - probably best characterized as a "timeframe" or "target date" or something like that. Of course, the terminology is of little importance; it's the substance of Feingold's proposal that really matters.
So what of the substance? Well ... I'm punting, for now.
