McCain Introduces Resolution To Support "Surge"

If some Senators are still searching for a palatable resolution on the "surge", there is a new offering today.

The shape of the Senate debate over President Bush's plan to increase the number of troops in Iraq came into clearer focus Thursday as Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) and two other senators introduced a resolution to support the buildup.

After weeks of back-and-forth negotiations over resolutions, it appears likely the Senate debate over the 4-year-old war will pit McCain's resolution of "full support" against one introduced by Sen. John W. Warner (R-Va.) that "disagrees" with the president's proposal.
