A committee of U.S. Senators is trying to stop President Bush from sending more soldiers to Iraq.
Bush plans to send 21,500 more U.S. soldiers there. He hopes this will end the fighting sooner.
But the Senate Judiciary Committee (which helps choose judges), says Bush is not the only decision maker. They want to limit the war. They are starting work on this.
Some lawyers say Congress has the power to stop a war. Others say only the President can do this.
