Senate Dems to revoke Iraq 2002 AUMF

Amen! Crooks and Liars:
Determined to challenge President Bush, Senate Democrats are drafting legislation to limit the mission of U.S. troops in Iraq, effectively revoking the broad authority Congress granted in 2002, officials said Thursday.
This sounds like it has some teeth. Of course, Republicans will obstruct and if it passes Bush will veto. But Republicans will have to live with that in 2008. And who knows? The country has soured on this occupation, and maybe enough Republicans will go along (or at least not get in the way) that it will pass.
