* Out of Iraq or More Troops? A Debate on Withdrawal with Fmr. Senator
George McGovern, Congressman Dennis Kucinich and AEI's Joshua Muravchik *
As leading Democrats call on President Bush to soon begin withdrawing U.S.
troops from Iraq some Republicans are calling on more troops to be deployed.
We host a debate on the issue with former Democratic presidential candidate
and South Dakota senator, George McGovern, Ohio Congressmember Dennis
Kucinich and the American Enterprise Institute's Joshua Muravchik.
* Battle Brewing in Congress as Bush Admin Seeks Closure of Iraq
Reconstruction Corruption Monitor *
A new battle is brewing in Congress over how the US government monitors the
billions of dollars it spends on the reconstruction of Iraq. Leading
Congressional Republicans recently passed legislation that would close the
Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction. The special
agency has uncovered several cases of waste and abuse, and has helped indict
several American officials on charges of corruption.
