Bush meeting with Iraqi president
WHITE HOUSE (AP) -- President Bush is seeing
Iraqï¿½s interim president todayï¿½with less than two months to go before planned elections.
While other Sunni politicians in Iraq are calling for a delay in the voteï¿½and some are threatening a boycottï¿½President Ghazi al-Yawer says waiting beyond January 30th would be a mistake.
In a T-V interview yesterday, he said a postponement wonï¿½t solve the problem of bloodshed in Sunni areas, and would justï¿½in his wordsï¿½ï¿½prolong the agony.ï¿½
The meeting with al-Yawer is the first of three, back-to-back on Bushï¿½s schedule today. The others are Senegalï¿½s President Abdoulaye Wade and King Abdullah of Jordan.
