Three leading anti-war Democrats in the House of Representatives said Wednesday they now back a $50 billion bill that funds the Iraq war but calls for most US troops to be home by December 2008. Their support paves the way for the bill's passage later Wednesday. The trio, Reps. Lynn Woolsey, Barbara Lee and Maxine Waters, represent a liberal anti-war caucus that last week expressed opposition to the measure on the grounds it was too soft and did not demand an end to combat. The bill requires that President George W. Bush initiate troop withdrawals within 30 days of its passage with the goal of bringing home most soldiers and Marines by December 15, 2008. A provision added to the bill notes that money in the measure is available for "a safe and orderly redeployment" of US troops.
