Democratic leaders warn Bush against Iran attack

Democratic leaders in Congress lobbed a warning shot Friday at the White House not to launch an attack against Iran without first seeking approval from lawmakers. "The president does not have the authority to launch military action in Iran without first seeking congressional authorization," Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid told the National Press Club. The administration has accused Iran of meddling in Iraqi affairs and contributing technology and bomb-making materials for insurgents to use against US and Iraqi security forces.
