Democrats note anniversary of "Mission Accomplished" speech by President Bush in Washington

Sen. Robert Menendez, D-NJ, and Sen. Jim Webb, D-VA, (L to R) participate in a news conference to discuss the five-year anniversary of President Bush's "Mission Accomplished" speech delivered on board the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln on Capitol Hill in Washington on May 1, 2008. The Democrats noted, among other things, that of the more than 4,000 American troops killed in Iraq, only 139 had died as of Bush's speech proclaiming the end of major combat operations in Iraq.
