The chairman of the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee dismissed criticism that a resolution opposing a troop buildup in Iraq would embolden the enemy and estimated perhaps only 20 of the Senate's 100 members believe President George W. Bush "is headed in the right direction." "It's not the American people or the US Congress who are emboldening the enemy," Democratic Senator Joseph Biden, a White House hopeful in the 2008 elections, said Sunday. "It's the failed policy of this president - going to war without a strategy, going to war prematurely." The Democratic-controlled Senate plans to begin debate this week on a nonbinding resolution declaring that Bush's proposal to send 21,500 more troops to Baghdad and Anbar province is "not in the national interest." Last week, Biden's committee approved the measure on a near party-line vote of 12-9.
