Democrats in the US Congress would make another attempt at reducing the American military presence in Iraq should President George W. Bush, as expected, veto current legislation aimed at bringing home US troops, Senator Carl Levin said Monday. The Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman said he prefers passage of the current legislation. But he said Democrats would go forward with what he called a "second-best approach" to dealing with security issues in Iraq - a bill that would tie US economic and military support to the Iraqi government meeting performance benchmarks.
