President Bush said yesterday that he will veto the defense authorization bill because of Iraq's concerns that the legislation could hinder redevelopment efforts by entangling the country's assets in court claims by victims of Saddam Hussein.WHAT???
Bush said he is ready to work quickly with Congress in January to fix the bill, which also contains a 0.5 percent pay raise for US troops and reforms to healthcare services for veterans. Another 3 percent pay raise for the military approved separately by Congress will not be affected by the veto.
Although the president objected to some details in the bill, which authorizes major military programs, his aides said he does not seek to reopen those debates. But a provision that he said would permit plaintiffs' lawyers to freeze Iraqi funds would, according to Bush, do intolerable harm to the country's reconstruction efforts and the US relationship with Iraq.
"Iraq must not have its crucial reconstruction funds on judicial hold while lawyers argue and courts decide such legal assertions," Bush said.
