ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the war policy of President George Bush on Iraq war. He plans to talk about the possibility of drawing down troops in 2008 if security improves. A report concludes that the U.S.-backed government in Baghdad has met few of the benchmarks for political, economic and other reforms laid out by Congress in legislation. Republican members of the Senate continued to abandon President Bush's war policy as the Democratic majority readied legislation to force the president's hand.
