Congress passed the defense authorization bill Friday, “sending President Bush a defense bill requiring no change in strategy” in Iraq and “another $189.4 billion for the Iraq and Afghan wars.” The legislation also authorizes “more help to troops returning from combat and set conditions on contractors and pricey weapons programs” as well as a 3.5 percent pay raise for service members. Bush is expected to sign the legislation into law.
