"There's no doubt in my mind that when it's all said and done the
facts will show the world the truth," he said.

"There's going to be, you know, a lot of attempts to try to rewrite
history, and I can understand that. But I'm absolutely confident in
the decision I made."

Bush did not directly address the misstatement itself, made during his
State of the Union address.

White House spokesman Ari Fleischer set off a furor Monday when, under
questioning by reporters, he acknowledged that Bush was incorrect in
his State of the Union speech when he said "the British government has
learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of
uranium from Africa."

Wednesday, Fleischer said that "this type of information should not
have risen to the level of a presidential speech."

Michael Anton, a spokesman for the National Security Council, said
that when Bush made the speech, there was other intelligence
indicating Iraq had tried to acquire uranium from several countries in
Africa.

This other information, however, was not detailed or specific enough
to prove such a contention, he said.

The claim rested significantly on a letter or letters between
officials in Iraq and Niger that were obtained by European
intelligence agencies.

The communications are now accepted as forged.

On Sunday, Joseph Wilson, an envoy sent to Africa to investigate
allegations about Iraq's nuclear weapons program, said the Bush
administration manipulated his findings, possibly to strengthen the
rationale for war.

Wilson insisted in an NBC-TV interview that his doubts about the
purported Iraq-Niger connection reached the highest levels of
government, including Vice President **** Cheney's office.

Bush Defends Use of Prewar Intel on Iraq

By TOM RAUM

PRETORIA, South Africa --

President Bush on Wednesday defended his use of prewar intelligence on
Iraq, saying he is "absolutely confident" in his actions despite the
discovery that one claim he made about Saddam Hussein's weapons
pursuits was based on false information.

Court Allows Suit on Cheney Energy Panel (washingtonpost.com)

WASHINGTON - A federal appeals court Tuesday rejected the Bush
administration's bid to stop a lawsuit that seeks to delve into the
energy
industry's ties to Vice President **** Cheney's energy task force.
In a 2-1 ruling, the court said administration officials must turn over
some
information about the task force or list specific do***ents that they
intend
to withhold from the proceedings.
The administration argues that the lawsuit by the Sierra Club and a
conservative group, Judicial Watch, is an unwarranted intrusion into the
internal deliberations of the executive branch of government.
But Cheney and administration officials "have not satisfied the heavy
burden" required for the appeals court to get involved in the case, wrote
Appeals Court Judge David Tatel.
Bush administration officials have not even produced a log of do***ents
they
want to keep confidential, the appeals court said.
Appeals judges David Tatel and Harry Edwards rejected the
administration's
effort to stop the case. Judge A. Raymond Randolph dissented, declaring
that
"for the judiciary to permit this sort of discovery" into the actions of
the
executive branch "strikes me as a violation of the separation of powers."
Tatel said that if the administration is so concerned about unwarranted
intrusion, it can "invoke executive or any other privilege" in an
attempt to
keep the material out of the public domain.
Federal agencies have disclosed 39,000 pages of internal do***ents
related
to the work of Cheney's energy task force, material which so far has
yielded
nothing.
The energy plan adopted four months after President Bush took office
favored
opening more public lands to oil and gas drilling and proposed a wide
range
of other steps supported by industry.

Bush says that he does not need approval from the U.N.to wage
war.& he didn't need the approval of the voters to become
president either,did he?
