Last week Feingold, appearing on Newscenter 13's Sunrise show, explained why he thinks the time to get out is now.

"The idea of our troops, our Wisconsin kids standing there and making it possible for pot shots to be taken at them," says Feingold, "I don't think it's accomplishing much for the Iraqi people, I don't think it's helping our national security. I think it's time to bring the troops back or at least redeploy them and let's help Iraq in other ways."

Last year Feingold introduced a similar measure calling for troops to return by December 31st. His latest amendment likely won't come up for a vote until next week.
