ABSTRACT
The article reports on the approval of the Biden-Brownback amendment by U.S. legislators, as part of the defense authorization bill that supports the split of Iraq into federal regions. However, President George W. Bush is unlikely to veto the authorization simply to prevent Biden's amendment from passing, since it is a nonbinding resolution. The main provisions of the amendment urge the U.S. government to help Iraq in devolving power from the central government.
