The Democratic Party silence on Iraq is another moment of a voice lost. Faced with votes in favor of the war, the silence is deafening in Washington and the frustration is growing larger among voters. It's time for us to ask the question: What is the exit strategy?

The situation in Iraq is unacceptable to the American people -- and it is unacceptable to me. Our troops in Iraq have fought bravely. They have done everything we have asked them to do. Where mistakes have been made, the responsibility rests with me.

The country and the Congress were misled into war. I regret that we were not given the truth; as I said more than a year ago, knowing what we know now, I would not have gone to war in Iraq.

I know I would not.
