Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
“I know Joe feels strongly about that part of the world. I do too,” said Reid, rejecting Lieberman’s calls for ratcheting up tensions. “I believe our efforts should be diplomatic in nature,” Reid said, citing the recommendations of the Iraq Study Group and others to hold a regional conference to resolve security issues in the Middle East. \
Reid also noted that “we are so overextended” that the U.S. does not have the ground troops necessary for a war with Iran.
