Domenici Breaks with Bush on Iraq

Sen Pete Domenici (R-NM) has become the latest Republican adding his voice to a rising chorus of GOP opposition to staying in Iraq.

"I do not support an immediate withdrawal from Iraq or a reduction in funding for our troops. But I do support a new strategy that will move our troops out of combat operations and on the path to coming home." Sen Pete Domenici (R-NM)
He follows Sen Richard Lugar (R-IN) andSen John Warner (R-VA) in recent criticism of President Bush's approach to Iraq. The Bush administration had been hoping to stave off GOP defections until at least September -- when they were hoping for improvements from the "surge" and when more supplemental war funding came up for a vote.
