Senate Votes for Greater Oversight of Iraq War

The Washington Post reports that the Senate voted unaminously challenge the way in which the Bush adminstration has handled the Iraq War. From the article:

The Senate delivered President Bush its strongest rebuke yet on the conduct of the Iraq war, voting 98-0 to pass a defense policy bill that codifies the treatment of military detainees, establishes new legal rights for terrorism suspects and demands far more information from the White House on the progress of the conflict.

The measure must still pass the House, but the fact that it passed the senate without any dissenting votes may show that it won't have much of a problem.
