The Sad Tale of Rep. Jones

The strident Pro-War GOP Congressman who had the Capitol Hill cafeterias start serving "Freedom Fries" to "punish" the French has now had a change of heart:

Rep. Walter Jones of North Carolina will be among the lawmakers introducing legislation this week calling for a timetable for the withdrawal of American troops in Iraq.

"When I look at the number of men and women who have been killed — it's almost 1,700 now, in addition to close to 12,000 have been severely wounded — and I just feel that the reason of going in for weapons of mass destruction, the ability of the Iraqis to make a nuclear weapon, that's all been proven that it was never there," Jones said on ABC's "This Week."

Poor guy got played for a sucker, but he's starting to wake up. It is possible to change minds on the War. Too bad it just takes more deaths to make people see it. Rep. Jones sees the truth. Who else will?
