Edwards says change needed in Iraq strategy


NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Former North Carolina Senator John Edwards says today the war in Iraq isn't lost, but the United States must change its approach.

The Democratic presidential hopeful says on ABC's "Good Morning America" show that it's obvious that things haven't gone well in Iraq.

Edwards says President Bush isn't willing to change course and the American people are demanding a change. Edwards says the violence in Iraq is created by a political conflict and violence will continue until the conflict is resolved by Iraqi leaders.

Edwards also says the United States should plan a withdrawal of troops but keep rapid reaction forces nearby and "prepare for the worst."
