Senate Stages All Night Session on Iraq

Last night, the U.S. Senate participated in an all-night session to debate the Iraq war and troop withdrawal. As a part of their staging this debate, Democratic leadership rolled cots into the halls of the Capitol.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) initially threatened to schedule votes through the night and into the morning but then delayed votes until 5am. Many labeled the all-night debate a publicity stunt and said that nothing would be accomplished through holding session at such hours. The debate on setting a timetable for withdrawal and putting an end to the war has been the biggest issue in this session of Congress. For a full story, click here.

    While the debate on the war in Iraq is a hot button issue and very important, it needs to be serious and balanced and thus debating throughout the night was not an ideal way to debate this issue.
