President Obama yesterday ordered a review of George W. Bush’s guidelines for implementing legislation passed by Congress, at the same time saying that he would implement his own vision of how he wants the government to follow the law. Obama said government officials must check with Attorney General Eric Holder before relying on any of Bush’s signing statements for guidance.

About 12,000 U.S. soldiers will leave Iraq by September, officials said Sunday. The withdrawals, which will most likely come from Baghdad and Anbar province, once main battlefields of the war, are the first step in keeping with President Obama’s pledge to end America’s role in the war.
