House Debate on Iraq Resolution

On Tuesday, February 13, Wednesday, February 14 and Thursday, February 14 (6am-noon and 3am-9pm), will air full live coverage of the debate in the House of Representatives on a resolution objecting to President Bush's proposed troop build up in Iraq.  (The debate may continue on Friday, February 16, as well.)

The House is expected to vote on the non-binding resolution expressing disapproval of the President's decision to deploy 20,000 additional US troops to Iraq. It's the first debate in the House on the war since Democrats won control of Congress in November. In an unusual move, every member of Congress will be allotted five minutes to speak.

In addition, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (4-5pm), KCRW 89.9 FM and will broadcast NPR's daily hour-long wrap-ups of the debate. NPR Newscaster Paul Brown anchors the hour-long program, featuring highlights of the day's debate and analysis from NPR reporters and others.
