Washington, May 3 (RHC).- U.S. President George W. Bush and congressional leaders on Capitol Hill began negotiating a second war funding bill on Wednesday, with Democrats offering their first major concession: an agreement to drop their demand for a timeline to bring troops home from occupied Iraq. Democrats backed off after the House failed, on a vote of 222 to 203, to override the president's veto of a $124 billion measure that would have required U.S. occupation forces to begin withdrawing as early as July. But party leaders made it clear that the next bill will have to include language that influences war policy. http://www.periodico26.cu/english/news_world/iraq050307.htm wow! that is quite a failure.
