The US House of Representatives defied President George Bush by passing legislation on Thursday that would set the end of 2009 as the goal for withdrawing US troops from Iraq.

By a vote of 227-196, the Democrat-controlled House approved the measure that would start the pullout of US combat troops from Iraq within 30 days of enactment.
The legislation, likely to be blocked by Republicans in the Senate, has drawn a veto threat from the White House.

Is it the time to Free America?
Nancy Pelosi is an American and in fact 3rd powerful person in the country. She made a valid comment for the sake of America. Yet, she is getting abused and insulted by people who clearly appear to be more Israeli than Americans! One must wonder is America is free country?
Silencing the debate is not a noble act and reflects on you.
