The Pentagon says it has enough money to pay for the Iraq war through June. The Army is taking a series of "prudent measures" aimed at making sure delays in the bill financing the war don't harm troop readiness, according to instructions sent to Army commanders and budget officials. The House was expected to name its negotiators on the war-funding bill with the intent of producing a House-Senate compromise next week. President Bush has promised to veto the bill over its timelines for troop withdrawal, and Democrats hope to send a second bill acceptable to Mr. Bush sometime next month.
