President Bush spoke during a photo opportunity in a meeting with the leaders of agricultural organizations on the fast-track legislative authority process, which the administration has maintained is critical to the continued negotiations in trade talks concerning the North American Free Trade Amendment. He was optimistic that Congress would extend fast-track trade authority, and said the campaign to persuade Congress on the issue was being undertaken in a non-partisan manner. Responding to reporters' questions, President Bush said the U.S. would continue to be the “catalyst” in the efforts toward peace in the Middle East. He also commented on a book written by Bob Woodward that claimed dissent existed in the Republican ranks during the planning stages of the Persian Gulf war. President Bush lauded General Colin Powell for his input and support during the entire Persian Gulf war. close
