    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled, That the following sums 
are appropriated, out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise 
appropriated, for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2008, and for 
other purposes, namely:

   TITLE I--POLICY ON REDEPLOYMENT AND CONDUCT OF OPERATIONS IN IRAQ

    Sec. 101.  It is the sense of the Congress that--
            (1) the war in Iraq should end as safely and quickly as 
        possible and our troops should be brought home;
            (2) the performance of United States military personnel in 
        Iraq and Afghanistan should be commended, their courage and 
        sacrifice have been exceptional, and when they come home, their 
        service should be recognized appropriately; and
            (3) the primary purpose of funds made available by this Act 
        should be to transition the mission of United States Armed 
        Forces in Iraq and undertake their redeployment, and not to 
        extend or prolong the war.
    Sec. 102. (a) No person in the custody or under the effective 
control of the United States Government shall be subject to any 
treatment or technique of interrogation not authorized by and listed in 
the United States Army Field Manual FM2-22.3 Human Intelligence 
Collector Operations.
    (b) Subsection (a) shall not apply with respect to any person in 
the custody or under the effective control of the United States 
Government pursuant to a criminal law or immigration law of the United 
States. Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect the rights 
under the United States Constitution of any person in the custody or 
under the physical jurisdiction of the United States.
    Sec. 103.  None of the funds made available in this Act may be used 
in contravention of the following laws enacted or regulations 
promulgated to implement the United Nations Convention Against Torture 
and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (done at 
New York on December 10, 1984)--
            (1) section 2340A of title 18, United States Code;
            (2) section 2242 of the Foreign Affairs Reform and 
        Restructuring Act of 1998 (division G of Public Law 105-277; 
        112 Stat. 2681-822; 8 U.S.C. 1231 note) and regulations 
        prescribed thereto, including regulations under part 208 of 
        title 8, Code of Federal Regulations, and part 95 of title 22, 
        Code of Federal Regulations; and
            (3) sections 1002 and 1003 of the Department of Defense, 
        Emergency Supplemental Appropriations to Address Hurricanes in 
        the Gulf of Mexico, and Pandemic Influenza Act, 2006 (Public 
        Law 109-148).
    Sec. 104. (a) The Congress finds that United States military units 
should not enter into combat unless they are fully capable of 
performing their assigned mission. The Congress further finds that this 
is the policy of the Department of Defense.
    (b) None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available by 
this Act may be used to deploy any unit of the Armed Forces to Iraq 
unless the President has certified in writing to the Committees on 
Appropriations and the Committees on Armed Services of the Senate and 
the House of Representatives at least 15 days in advance of the 
deployment that the unit is ``fully mission capable''.
    (c) For the purposes of subsection (b) the term ``fully mission 
capable'' means capable of performing a unit's assigned mission to the 
prescribed standards under the conditions expected in the theater of 
operation, consistent with the guidelines set forth in the Department 
of Defense's Defense Readiness Reporting System.
    (d) The President, by certifying in writing to the Committees on 
Appropriations and the Committees on Armed Services of the Senate and 
the House of Representatives that the deployment to Iraq of a unit that 
is not assessed fully mission capable is required for reasons of 
national security and by submitting along with a certification a report 
in classified and unclassified form detailing the particular reason or 
reasons why the unit's deployment is necessary, may waive the 
limitations prescribed in subsection (b) on a unit-by-unit basis.
    Sec. 105. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, funds 
appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act are available 
immediately for obligation to plan and execute a safe and orderly 
redeployment of United States Armed Forces from Iraq.
    (b) Within 30 days after enactment of this Act, the President shall 
commence an immediate and orderly redeployment of United States Armed 
Forces from Iraq, which shall be implemented as part of the 
comprehensive regional stability plan described in subsection (g). The 
President shall endeavor to begin such redeployment with units of the 
Armed Forces that have been deployed in excess of 365 days, except to 
the extent those units are needed to provide for the safe withdrawal of 
other units of the Armed Forces or to protect United States and 
Coalition personnel and infrastructure.
    (c) The reduction in United States Armed Forces required by this 
section shall be implemented in conjunction with a comprehensive 
diplomatic, political and economic strategy that includes sustained 
engagement with Iraq's neighbors and the international community for 
the purpose of working collectively to bring stability to Iraq.
    (d) The goal for the completion of the transition of United States 
Armed Forces to a limited presence and missions as described in 
subsection (e) shall be a date that is not later than December 15, 
2008.
    (e) After the conclusion of the reduction and transition of United 
States Armed Forces to a limited presence as required by this section, 
the Secretary of Defense may deploy or maintain members of the Armed 
Forces in Iraq only for the following missions:
            (1) Protecting United States diplomatic facilities, United 
        States Armed Forces, and American citizens.
            (2) Conducting limited training, equipping, and providing 
        logistical and intelligence support to the Iraqi Security 
        forces.
            (3) Engaging in targeted counterterrorism operations 
        against al-Qaeda, al-Qaeda affiliated groups, and other 
        terrorist organizations in Iraq.
    (f) Not later than February 1, 2008, and every 90 days thereafter, 
the Secretary of Defense shall submit to the congressional defense 
committees a report setting forth the following:
            (1) The current plan for and the status of the reduction of 
        United States Armed Forces in Iraq and the transition of the 
        Armed Forces in Iraq to a limited presence whose missions do 
        not exceed the missions specified in subsection (e), including 
        the associated force reductions and adjustments and 
        expectations with respect to timelines and the force levels 
        anticipated to perform those missions.
            (2) A comprehensive current description of efforts to 
        prepare for the reduction and transition of United States Armed 
        Forces in Iraq in accordance with this section and to limit any 
        destabilizing consequences of such reduction and transition, 
        including a description of efforts to work with the United 
        Nations and countries in the region toward that objective.
    (g) Not later than February 15, 2008, the President shall submit to 
the Congress in classified and unclassified form a comprehensive 
regional stability plan for the Middle East, which shall include a 
military, diplomatic, political and economic strategy that provides for 
the national security interests of the United States in the region and 
for the engagement of targeted counterterrorism operations. The plan 
shall include a detailed description of the projected United States 
military force presence in and around the Middle East region for the 5-
year period beginning on October 1, 2008.
    Sec. 106.  The amounts appropriated by this Act are sufficient to 
fully meet the immediate needs of the United States Armed Forces 
deployed to Iraq. Congressional consideration of additional funding 
shall be deferred until the first report required by section 105(f) is 
submitted to the Congress.
