Can Bush Tie the Hands of Future Presidents on Iraq?

Hosted by

President Bush and the Democrats in Congress may be in for another battle over Iraq. In 11 months the United Nations mandate for military action runs out and the administration wants Iraq to give the US both combat authority and grant civilian contractors protection from Iraqi law, without the approval of Congress. Charlie Savage, White House correspondent for the Boston Globe, is author of Takeover: the Return of the Imperial Presidency.
