An Objective that is Obtainable

Senator Gordon Smith (R-Ore), who famously spoke on the Senate floor last week of being "at the end of my rope" about the war, speaking today on CNN:
The American People will and should hold us accountable. So if you've got something to say, now's the time to say it. Either let's fight the war intelligently, for an objective that is obtainable, or let's admit it, and figure out how to preserve the lives of our soldiers.
Was that so hard? Way to go, Gordon.

I don't know exactly whom that second sentence is targeted towards. It's not as if no one was saying "Don't Go to War!" or "This War is a Sham" or "What Are We There For?" over the last five years. I'd like to believe that in a way he's saying that to other congressmen.
