Terrorism Intelligence

President Bush is ordering part of an intelligence report be declassified, so people can see exactly what it says about the war in Iraq.

The National Intelligence Estimate reportedly concludes the war has worsened terrorism. But Bush calls that "naive" and says he "strongly" disagrees that the war was a mistake.

He says people are reaching that conclusion by guessing what's in the report. And Bush says the leaked part of the report doesn't tell the full story.

The president contends the leak was made for political purposes just weeks before Election Day. Democrats have used that to bolster their criticism of the administration's Iraq policy.

Bush says he will do "whatever it takes" to protect the U-S, and that the best way to do that is to defeat terrorists overseas.

Bush spoke at a White House news conference with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
