Lone dissenter

Sen. James Jefford, I-VT, the sole dissenter on a Senate vote urging Geoge Bush to give soldiers fighting in Iraq War on Terrorism medals:
Those who support giving this medal to our troops in Iraq are once again trying to make a connection between Sept. 11 and Iraq that simply does not exist. I am a veteran and I wholeheartedly support our troops, but I believe it does the men and women in our military a great disservice to misrepresent the reasons why they are in Iraq. They certainly deserve medals for their service, but I will not be a part of the White House campaign to redefine this war.
