"Vets For Freedom" Salutes McConnell

In the past, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been a popular target of anti-war activists.

Now he's being saluted by a veterans group for supporting military efforts in Iraq.

"Vets for Freedom" is a group that was formed by veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The group plans to debut a television ad on Aug. 12 to counter the criticism of Senator McConnell by the anti-war groups.

The ad says the Republican senator has been under pressure from people who are willing to accept defeat, but thanks him for his efforts.

McConnell has been the leading senate defender of President Bush's war policy.
