Lieberman declines to rule out Shays call for troop withdrawal

The three-term Democrat is waging an independent campaign for re-election that is seen nationally as a referendum on the Iraq war.

The proposal was floated by Republican Congressman Chris Shays, who also faces a tough re-election battle against an anti-war candidate. Shays has long been a supporter of the war and previously has opposed withdrawal timetables.

Shays proposed a timeline Thursday on a telephone conference call from London with reporters following his 14th visit to Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.
