Bill on Iraq to Be Delivered 4 Years After Bush’s Words

NYT reported Democratic leaders in Congress are planning a special ceremony on Tuesday afternoon to send President Bush a bill that sets timetables for troop withdrawal from Iraq.
Which they know he will veto.
The timing is no accident. It comes on the fourth anniversary of the day Mr. Bush stood on an aircraft carrier under the banner “Mission Accomplished” and declared that major combat operations in Iraq had ended.
Actually what ended was the mission for that particular aircraft carrier. It accomplished that mission, and there were not that many bombing missions that were launched by planes from aircraft carriers after that point. But Bush never said the mission in Iraq was accomplished. Dems just hope to fool people into thinking he claimed that.
