Sen. Lisa Murkowski on Resolution:

“I disagree with the President on the surge. Do I feel disloyal for saying that? No.”

"I’m concerned that the 20,000 will not be sufficient to quell the violence, in what I consider to be a civil war.”

She says she heard from returning troops “it’s a whack-a-mole situation.”

She disagrees that because it’s a non-binding resolution, it doesn’t make a difference.

“This cannot be the President’s war”

Murkowski says she agrees with Barack Obama that there should be more options other that “you’re either for the surge” or for withdrawal. She wants to explore other options. For example, pulling out of Baghdad.
