New Iraq NIE could be out tomorrow

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) introduced, along with others, H.R. 770, a new resolution on Iran on January 31, 2007. It is a resolution stating that it is the policy of the US not to enter into a preemptive war with Iran and no fund appropriated to any US agency can be used for the purpose of carrying out covert action to cause regime change in Iran or carry out any military action against Iran in the abscence of an imminent threat.

Also, I heard on 31 January that the new National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq could be released on February 2, 2007. This could explain why "the Bush administration has postponed plans to offer public details of its charges of Iranian meddling inside Iraq amid internal divisions over the strength of the evidence, U.S. officials said."
