U.S. House defeats bid to withdraw troops from Iraq

A U.S. MARINE WATCHES A STATUE OF PRESIDENT SADDAM HUSSEIN FALL IN CENTRAL BAGHDAD.The U.S. House of Representatives rejected legislation on Wednesday that would have forced President Barack Obama to pull all U.S. troops from Iraq and Syria as soon as one month from now, but nearly one-third of the chamber voted for the measure. The House voted 288-139 to defeat the concurrent resolution, which would have required Obama to remove the troops within 30 days, or by the end of 2015 if the administration determined it was not safe to do so within the 30-day timeframe. The resolution was introduced by Democratic Representatives Jim McGovern of Massachusetts and Barbara Lee of California and Republican Representative Walter Jones of North Carolina.
