Edwards Blames Bush And Congress For Failing To End The War

Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards criticized both President Bush and Congress in a televised response yesterday for failing to pull out of Iraq.

But the former North Carolina senator's dual criticisms came in a unique two-minute ad that he paid for on MSNBC. It aired in the second commercial break after after Bush addressed the nation.

Bush said he has agreed to reduce the number of U.S. troops from their highest level of the war, but rejected calls to leave Iraq.

Edwards says Congress has the power to end the war by withholding funding that isn't contingent on a time-line for withdrawal.
