Bush defends Iraq war

President Bush offered a rousing defense of the war in Iraq today, telling soldiers at Fort Bragg that early withdrawal would "jeopardize the safety of future generations." Speaking at the annual All-American Week celebration, Bush praised the 82nd Airborne Division as "America's guard of honor" and credited its soldiers for successfully leading a surge of troops in Iraq. "Because of your bravery and your determination, the terrorists and extremists are on the run, and we are on our way to victory," he said.
