DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Republican Fred Thompson says a long-term U.S. presence in Iraq "would not be a good development."
In an interview with the Associated Press yesterday, the former Tennessee Senator spoke about the Iraq war, saying the U.S. did not go in with enough troops.
He said it was going to take a while to get the situation under control and described his definition of success in Iraq as people being able to worship without fear of being blown up and political leaders being able to meet without fear of being blown up.
Thompson also said there's evidence a surge in the number of troops is working.
