Pelosi Statement on President Bush's Address on Iraq

March 17, 2003

Washington, D.C. -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after President Bush's address to the nation tonight on Iraq:

“The President's address to the nation tonight was a somber statement on the most solemn decision facing our nation -- whether to send our military men and women into harm's way. Like many Americans, I have raised questions about whether military action at this time is the best way to disarm Saddam Hussein and whether we have exhausted every other alternative.

“Sadly, we stand on the brink of war. If our troops are ordered into action, Americans will support and stand united behind our courageous men and women in uniform who will bear the burden of that action.”
