"House rejects nine-month Iraq withdrawal."

The House of Representatives “defeated legislation Thursday to require the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Iraq within nine months, then pivoted to a fresh challenge of President Bush’s handling of the unpopular war. The vote on the nine-month withdrawal measure was 255-171.” The full roll call is HERE.

UPDATE: Matt Stoller has more.
