Congressional aides said on Monday that the White House is putting together a proposal to shift some money that had been designated for use in Afghanistan for possible military operations in Iraq. As they formulate a response to the Iraq crisis, White House officials have told lawmakers they will submit this week or next a request to Congress for "Overseas Contingency Operations" funding, carving out some money for Iraq that had previously been anticipated for use in Afghanistan.
