Bush Signs Iraq Funding Bill

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2007/05/26/bush-signs-iraq-funding-b_n_49409.html

President Bush signed a bill Friday to pay for military operations in
Iraq after a bitter struggle with Democrats in Congress who sought unsuccessfully to tie the money to U.S. troop withdrawals.

Bush signed the bill into law at the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland, where he is spending part of the Memorial Day weekend. In announcing the signing, White House spokesman Tony Fratto noted that it came 109 days after Bush sent his emergency spending request to Congress.
