Bush's latest Iraq speech

I do not think I will be the only one to see this as a completely different tone from the president. CNN:

(CNN) -- President Bush said Friday that the U.S. must continue to fight in Iraq to prevent it from becoming a failed state from which terrorists would launch attacks on other nations to implement their radical ideology.

Prewar intelligence

George W. Bush's response to Democratic challenges about intelligence takes center stage in the early (and brief) A.P. filing:

"More than 100 Democrats in the House and the Senate who had access to the same intelligence voted to support removing Saddam Hussein from power," Bush said.


1315 EST: a lengthier AP story is on file:

"As our troops fight a ruthless enemy determined to destroy our way of life, they deserve to know that their elected leaders who voted to send them to war continue to stand behind them," the president said. "Our troops deserve to know that this support will remain firm when the going gets tough. And our troops deserve to know that, whatever our differences in Washington, our will is strong, our nation is united and we will settle for nothing less than victory."
