The Troops Hurt Lieberman's Feelings [VIDEO]

Joe Lieberman says he's "really upset" with the troops for not "speaking from their heart" when he visited them in Iraq two weeks ago.
When Sen. Lieberman made his John McCain-style visit to Iraq he came back regurgitating, as expected, the White House's line on Iraq. But then reports came out about US soldiers who wanted to express dissent and discouragement with regards to the war but feared being demoted if they spoke out. This morning on CNN, Lieberman was confronted about these stories and not only did he go on insisting that Iraq is improving and that the war will come to America if we don't fight it there, but he also manages to imply that the troops were simply dishonest with him. Check out the video to your right to see Joe spin.
