US Senate rejects Democrat Iraq withdrawal plan
The US Senate Thursday rejected a plan by the Democratic majority to set a timetable to withdraw US troops from Iraq by late March 2008, but agreed a separate resolution voicing support for the forces.
The Senate rejected the measure formulated by the Democratic leadership by 50 votes to 48, in the latest showdown between Congress's Democratic leaders and Republican backers of President George W. Bush.
The bill fell short of a simple majority and the 60-vote supermajority needed to overcome Republican procedural hurdles and pass out of the Senate.
