Special Coverage

Listen to President Bush's first news conference of 2007, as well as analysis from NPR.

In his first news conference of the year, President Bush again makes his case for increased U.S. troop levels in Iraq.

The president acknowledged the debate in Congress over a non-binding resolution opposing his Iraq policy. But he said the important vote would be a different vote, one covering funding for the troops in Iraq.
