Senate Democrats working with a well-known Republican war critic are developing a resolution declaring that President George W. Bush's troop buildup in Iraq "is not in the national interest," says a person familiar with the document. The resolution also would put the Senate on record as saying the US commitment in Iraq "can only be sustained" with popular support among the American public and in Congress, according to an official familiar with the draft. Sen. Chuck Hagel, a Republican and potential 2008 presidential candidate, is helping Democrats with the wording of the anti-war resolution. "It is not in the national interest of the United States to deepen its military involvement in Iraq, particularly by escalating U.S. troop presence in Iraq," a draft of the resolution says.
