War protesters arrested in San Francisco

Posted: Updated:

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - San Francisco Police arrested 17 anti-war protesters Monday morning for blocking a street in the city's financial district. The group gathered outside Senator Dianne Feinstein's office. The rally caused delays for morning commuters.

Sunday marked the third anniversary of the war in Iraq.

Feinstein: Situation looks 'dismal'
Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee says the situation in Iraq looks "dismal". And Delaware Senator Joseph Biden blames what he calls "the dangerous incompetence" of the Bush Administration. As the war enters its fourth year, Biden says the county is in a "low-grade civil war". He says that may deteriorate into a full-blown civil war when the rival militias fully engage each other in violence.

Biden says President Bush "has to take a political risk" to get foreign leaders involved in pressuring Iraqis to form a unity government.

Bush says he has confidence in strategy
Speaking in Cleveland on Monday, Bush says he has confidence in the U-S strategy in Iraq, and he's calling on Americans to look behind the violence for signs of progress. He says there is "reason for hope for a free Iraq".

More deaths reported in Iraq
Meanwhile, more deaths have been reported Monday in Iraq. Three civilians died in an explosion at a Baghdad coffee shop, and at least eight Iraqi police officers were killed by roadside bombs. Authorities have also found the bodies of 15 people dumped in the capitol.
