WASHINGTON - The U.S. House rejected setting a timetable for a military withdrawal from Iraq after a 10-hour debate Friday in which both parties previewed their election-year strategies on the controversial war.

Lawmakers approved, 255-153, a nonbinding GOP resolution stating that the Iraq conflict is part of the war on terrorism and no deadline should be set for pulling out the troops."
