Iraq War Criticism Stalks Bush Overseas - Yahoo! News

OSAN AIR BASE, South Korea - His war policies under siege at home,

An AP-Ipsos poll earlier this month found a significant drop in the share of Americans saying Bush is honest. Also, with the U.S. death toll now above 2,080 in Iraq, nearly two-thirds of the country disapproves of Bush's conduct of the war.

Underscoring those worries, unwelcome news poured out of Iraq Friday. Suicide bombers detonated explosives at two Shiite mosques in Khanaqin, near the Iranian border, killing at least 74 worshippers during noon prayers. In Baghdad, a pair of car bombs targeted a hotel housing Western journalists and killed several Iraqis nearby.

Some Republicans on Capitol Hill have become willing to question Bush on Iraq — albeit carefully — amid fears that the public's concerns will affect next year's midterm congressional elections.
