President Bush and Afghanistan President Karzai spoke to the press about relations between the U.S. and Afghanistan, as well as efforts to combat terrorism and maintain security in Afghanistan. In response to questions over a leaked National Intelligence Estimate that had described an increased threat of terrorism to the U.S. due to international grievances over U.S. policy in Iraq, President Bush angrily called the leak a political act intended to affect the upcoming midterm elections. "Somebody has taken it upon themselves to leak classified information for political purposes," he said. The president added that it was naive to think that terrorism would be any less pervasive if the United States had not invaded Iraq. He said that he reluctantly ordered the release of the National Intelligence Estimate so people could form their own conclusions about it. close
