Pelosi: Dems will unite against Bush's Iraq policy
By JERUSALEM POST STAFF
House of Representatives leader Nancy Pelosi pledged the support of House Democrats for legislation declaring that President George W. Bush's decision to send additional troops to Iraq is "not in the national interest of the United States."
Pelosi's commitment Thursday came as Senate Democrats said they intend to begin advancing a nonbinding measure next week that criticizes the White House's new strategy. The Democrats hold a majority in both chambers of Congress.
Democrats sought to bring public pressure to bear on the president's new policy as Bush and senior administration officials worked to limit Republican defections when the issue comes before Congress.
