Congress-White House showdown on Iraq War

Both the House of Representative and Senate of the United States have officially passed a resolution requiring all US combat troops to be pulled out from Iraq by 1 September next year. However, President Bush, being the constitutionally designated Commander-in-Chief of the United States' armed forces is opposed to the Quit Iraq dateline and has vowed to veto the resolution. So, there is certainly a monumental and running debate in the United States between the Congress and White House not only on the external strategies for Iraq but also the domestic distribution of war- and peace-making power. Both the Presidency and Congress are popularly elected.
