Bush, congressional leaders fail to agree on war plan

President Bush and congressional Democrats aired their differences over Iraq in an hour-long meeting at the White House Wednesday but failed to agree on a war plan. Meeting participants said Bush reiterated his opposition to any timetable for withdrawal, while Democrats declared their determination to end the war. The disagreement has stalled a war-funding bill that both sides agree is needed to maintain supplies for the troops.
