Democrats Starting to Fault President on the War's Future WASHINGTON, Feb. 28 — In the first strong Democratic criticism of the Bush administration's war on terrorism, the Senate majority leader and two powerful committee chairman are questioning whether the White House is expanding its military efforts without a clear explanation of its aims.
"I don't think it would do anybody any good to second-guess what has been done to date," Senator Tom Daschle, the majority leader, told reporters today. "I think it has been successful. I've said that on many, many occasions. But I think the jury's still out about future success."
