Failing Iraq/Failing at Home

Despite growing public opposition, Congress is repeating the mistake they made before the Iraq war began: giving President Bush an $87 billion green light for a muddled, unwinnable policy. Facing deep budget cuts, deficits and unmet needs at home, Americans are angry about war profiteering by U.S. corporations in Iraq. Last week's victories in Congress and the UN will lead us deeper into the quagmire without a fundamental change of course.
