The House of Representatives passed a resolution Tuesday that condemns the State Department for its refusal to divulge details on Iraqi corruption in what has become the latest showdown with the Bush administration on the war and the administration's classification policies. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.)sponsored the nonbinding resolution, which states the administration had abused its power by classifying US assessments on corruption inside Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's government. The House agreed to the measure, 395-21. The nonbinding measure is among several challenges by Democrats to President George W. Bush's management of the war. They lack the two-thirds majority necessary in the 435-seat House to override a presidential veto of legislation that would order troops home.
