White House to query Iraqi government over reported purge of security officers

White House to query Iraqi government over reported purge of security officers

President George W. Bush said Monday he will veto a spending bill that sets a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq but wants to work with Democrats on compromise legislation to fund the war.
"There are a lot of Democrats who understand we need to get the money to the troops," Bush said.
The president said he had sent a clear signal that he would veto the measure, which calls for troops to begin being pulled out in October.
The legislation "imposes the judgments of people here in Washington on military commanders and diplomats," he said. "So I will veto the bill."
