Bush uses radio address to tell Americans he has clear strategy in Iraq

President Bush is using his weekly radio address to assure the country that the U.S. has a clear mission in Iraq.

Bush says the plan calls for destroying terrorism, enlisting international support for Iraq, and quickly transferring power to the Iraqi people.

But apparently, fewer than half of Americans believe it. A CNN USA Today-Gallup poll released yesterday found 59 percent of Americans don't think the Bush administration has a clear plan for dealing with Iraq.

Bush said that since the terror attacks of 911, the U.S. has removed the Taliban regime in Afghanistan and removed the Iraqi regime that sponsored terror. He says plans call for fighting terrorists in Iraq and making Iraq an example of progress and democracy.
