Good money after bad blood money

Congress Passes War Funds Bill, Ending Impasse:

Democrats in the House and Senate promised to renew the push for a timetable for Iraq withdrawal in other bills on Pentagon spending and policy. And the House, as part of its consideration of the money, set a framework for another round of votes in the fall on troop withdrawal and overturning the original authority for the war.

“This debate will go on,” promised Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, who voted against the war money and described the new benchmarks as token restrictions.

Nearing 3,500 US soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians killed, still they dither, fumble and generally display a level of incompetence that has never been seen before. As in 'Never!'

Nothing new, really, except now the Dems will have a hand in it.
