This is viewer supported news

Congressional debate on an invasion of Iraq opened in the House and Senate. President-select Bush is seeking support for a resolution that would give him backing to use unilateral military force against Iraq without UN Security Council approval or prior notice to Congress.

While 21 hours has been devoted to the debate on an invasion of Iraq, only one quarter of that time will be given to voices in opposition to the war.

Today we’ll hear from three members of Congress. We begin with Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), a member of the International Relations Committee who supports the President and Congressman David Bonior (D-MI) who intends to oppose the Iraq resolution in favor of another round of inspections.

Tape:

  • Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), member of the International Relations Committee.
