HICKAM AIR FORCE BASE, Hawaii
HICKAM AIR FORCE BASE, Hawaii (Reuters) - President George W. Bush said on Saturday his resolve to press ahead with the effort to stabilize Iraq was as strong as ever, the latest indication he is unlikely to call for a major change in strategy when he delivers a report to Congress next week.
Bush, after visiting wounded soldiers at Hickam Air Force Base, said he told them he was encouraged by what he saw during his unannounced trip to Iraq last Monday.
"There's no question there's still hard work to do. But my resolve is as strong as it has ever been," Bush told reporters.
