North Carolina Republican Congressman Walter Jones says he has about 50 co-sponsors to the resolution.
Jones said the reason for going to war — Saddam Hussein's alleged possession of weapons of mass destruction — has been proven false.Before dissecting the resolution or speculating on how the White House will ignore it, I ask you to pause. Remember that the anti-war movement, like every thing worth fighting for, will succeed cumulatively. Every voice of opposition is a Good Thing. Every member of Congress who opposes Fearless Leader is doing the right thing. The chorus demanding an end to the war gets louder, others gain courage to add their own voice, and one day, one bright day in the future, we will have grown too large to ignore.
"If I had known then what I know now, I wouldn't have supported the resolution," said Jones, who had coined the term "freedom fries" as a show of support for the war in Iraq.
He said that if numbers are accurate that between 75,000 and 100,000 Iraqis have been trained as soldiers and police, then it's approaching time for the country to start defending itself.
Jones said he has sent letters to families of fallen troops. He's also met with family members of troops killed in Iraq, including with Cindy Sheehan, the California woman who was sitting outside President Bush's ranch in Texas to protest the war.
