A U.S. Democratic senator said on Sunday that he was planning to introduce legislation to censure President George W. Bush over his handling of the Iraq war.

"I think we need to do something serious in terms of accountability. And that's why I will be shortly introducing a censure resolution of the president and the administration," Russ Feingold, a Democrat from Wisconsin, said on NBC's "Meet The Press. "

"This is an opportunity for people to say, let's at least reflect on the record that something terrible has happened here," he said.

One of the two resolutions Feingold planned to introduce would censure Bush for getting the country into the Iraq war, the administration's failure to adequately prepare the military, and issuing misleading statements about the war.

The other resolution would criticize the president for the administration's "outrageous attack on the rule of law," such as authorizing the warrantless domestic spying program and the " torture" of detainees in Iraq and at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Senator Harry Reid, the Democratic leader in the Senate, said Feingold's proposed measures reflected the nation's sentiment, but that he might not act on them.

"We have a lot of work to do," Reid said during an interview with CBS. "The president already has the mark of the American people -- he's the worst president we ever had. I don't think we need a censure resolution in the Senate to prove that," he said.
