The article reports on the addition of hate crimes measure to the defense authorization by Senate Democrats in the U.S. The move, as cited, gave the Democrats more time to solicit Grand Old Party (GOP) votes for a new Iraq withdrawal plan. Senator Jon Kyl, GOP's conference chairman noted that the pause in Iraq debate showed that Democrats likely concede their fight to force a troop drawdown in Iraq. He added that the hate crimes amendment may suggest the end of the series of debates on the bill.
