Supporting the Troops By Not Supporting the Troops

The sneaky Democrats just won't give up their mission.
Determined to challenge President Bush, Senate Democrats are drafting legislation to limit the mission of U.S. troops in Iraq, effectively revoking the broad authority Congress granted in 2002, officials said Thursday.

While these officials said the precise wording of the measure remains unsettled, one draft would restrict American troops in Iraq to combatting al-Qaida, training Iraqi army and police forces, maintaining Iraq's territorial integrity and otherwise proceeding with the withdrawal of combat forces.
Just don't question their patriotism. They're very sensitive about that.

UPDATE: Jules Crittenden has an excellent Iraq roundup. More at Sister Toldjah and Captain's Quarters.
