House of Representatives votes to withdraw from Iraq.

From The Guardian
The U.S. House of Representatives, in a surprise and largely symbolic move, defeated legislation on Thursday to fund the war in Iraq for another year.
And the Bush response?
The House bill "seeks to tie the hands of our military commanders and impose an artificial timeline for withdrawal," the White House said.
And I thought that under the US constitution, civilians were supposed to control the military. Silly me.
