Dems Abandon War Authority Provision (AP, 3/12/07)

Top House Democrats retreated Monday from an attempt to limit President Bush's authority for taking military action against Iran as the leadership concentrated on a looming confrontation with the White House over the Iraq war.

Officials said Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other members of the leadership had decided to strip from a major military spending bill a requirement for Bush to gain approval from Congress before moving against Iran.


Who knew Pelosi is a French name?

See how the interests of Israel had figured in this matter. One would almost think Israel had served as a pretext and hostage to empire, or something.
