Iraq

There is growing movement in Washington to develop an exit strategy for Iraq and there is more and more attention being paid to the Downing Street memo and the President's efforts prior to invading Iraq. It will be interesting to see how these stories develop. Today, in Washington, Knight Ridder is reporting that Reps. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, Walter Jones, R-N.C., Ron Paul, R-Texas, and Neil Abercrombie, D-Hawaii, are holding a news conference to discuss legislation calling on President Bush to phase out U. S. troops in Iraq. This follows polls showing public opposition to the war high and rising, and as the military is having trouble meeting its recruitment goals. Is America's support for U.S. involvement in Iraq near a tipping point? Could that force early withdrawal? This will be a story we look at this afternoon.
