Lieberman-Kyl Introduce Provocative Amendment

On September 20, 2007, Senators Jon Kyl (R-AZ) and Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) filed Amendment No. 3017 to the Fiscal Year 2008 Defense Authorization bill. This extremely provocative measure is a "Sense of Senate" resolution, which if passed, would say it is the policy of the United States to "combat, contain and roll back" Iran and its surrogates in Iraq. The amendment also expresses the view that Iran's Revolutionary Guard should be designated a terrorist organization, a move that the Bush administration is possibly now considering according to leaked media reports last month.
