Why no accusations re Poland?

November 23, 2007 | By | Reply More

Poland is pulling out of Iraq, according to the Associated Press. 

Poland’s new prime minister outlined ambitious plans for the next four years in his inaugural address Friday, saying he plans to withdraw troops from Iraq next year but also push for stronger relations with NATO.

U.S. State Department spokesman Edgar Vasquez said Friday that the U.S. had been discussing the issue with the new Polish government and was grateful for Poland’s contribution.

So here’s my question:  Why isn’t the Bush Administration railing on Poland, accusing Poland of cut and run, accusing Poland of being unpatriotic, suggesting that Poland is now an ally of Osama Bin Laden?

And if Poland can quit the Iraq project without being disparaged, why not treat dissenting Americans with similar respect?
