Bush War Doctrine Sustains Another Blow

Three months into their take-over of the U.S. Congress, Democrats landed their second body blow to the Bush War Doctrine by narrowly approving (50-48) a nonbinding resolution in favor of an Iraq War withdrawal.

The Senate has now joined the House in passing resolutions to end the U.S. combat presence in Iraq. The vote assures that the U.S. Congress will send legislation to the White House later this spring mandating a dramatic change in war policy.

The president has promised to veto any change to the Bush War Doctrine.

While Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT) voted with the Republicans, Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE)cast the deciding vote in favor of the resolution.
