ABSTRACT
The article presents a message to the House of Representatives by U.S. President George W. Bush on his reason for vetoing H.R. 1591 on May 1, 2007. He says he vetoed the bill because it sets an arbitrary date for starting the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq, as well as micromanages the commanders in the field by restricting their ability to direct the fight in Iraq. He also vetoes the bill as it contains billions of dollars of spending and other provisions totally unrelated to the war.
