Chicago, IL – Illinois U.S. Senator Dick Durbin said yesterday he plans to vote against President Bush's request for war approval plans against Iraq.
Durbin called the war resolution poorly timed and poorly reasoned. The Senate is expected to vote on the matter this week.
Durbin also said he does not consider Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein an imminent threat to the U-S, and says an invasion without clear backing from allies risks terror backlash against the U.S.
