http://kennebecjournal.mainetoday.com/news/local/3061299.shtml President Bush held private and at times emotional meetings Thursday with the families of five Maine soldiers who died in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the Pentagon. One anti-war widow said she used the opportunity to voice her objections to Bush's policies. "I said it's time to stop the bleeding," said Hildi Halley, whose husband, Army National Guard Capt. Patrick Damon, died June 15 in Afghanistan. "It's time to swallow our pride and find a solution." She said Bush responding by saying "there was no point in us having a philosophical discussion about the pros and cons of the war."
