Feingold wants a terrorist safe haven?

So the U.S. Senate stayed up all night arguing over whether to Bring The Troops Home Now or not.

End result: they didn't.

Most interesting fact I've seen about the whole ridiculous exercise: this amendment to the Senate bill (via Don Surber):

”To express the sense of the Senate that it is in the national security interest of the United States that Iraq not become a failed state and a safe haven for terrorists.”
The amendment passed 94-3. Voting no: Byrd, Harkin, and our own Russ Feingold.

I'm waiting to see some statement from Feingold on the vote, but, geez, Russ, are you saying that a failed Iraq and a safe haven for terrorists is in our national interest?

Or are you just that Kos-crazy?
