Democratic leaders have put the kibosh on President Bush’s proposal for a bipartisan working group on Iraq, to be headed by Senator Joseph Lieberman.
“We welcome your expression of a willingness to work more cooperatively with Congress,” Pelosi and Reid wrote. “A relationship that acknowledges the different responsibilities reserved in the Constitution for the executive and legislative branches of our government would facilitate greatly doing the work the American people elected us to do. We believe that Congress already has bipartisan structures in place, like the committee system and other Congressional working groups such as the Senate’s National Security Working Group, that could produce the result you described in your speech.”
So what memo did Lieberman get?
