Thank you and congratulations! You told the Senate not to confirm David H. Laufman...he has withdrawn

President Bush's nominee to be Pentagon inspector general has withdrawn from consideration, meaning the Defense Department likely will start a second year without its chief watchdog even as the military spends billions a month in Iraq.

David Laufman, a decorated federal prosecutor, sent Bush a letter last week withdrawing from consideration after the Senate Armed Services Committee declined to hold a vote on his nomination before Congress recessed this year.
