Bush honoring three central to Iraq policy
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

WHITE HOUSE (AP) -- President Bush is awarding the nationÔŅĹs highest civilian honor today to three men who were central to his Iraq policy.

At a White House ceremony, Bush will present the Medal of Freedom to former C-I-A chief George Tenet, former Iraq administrator Paul Bremer and retired General Tommy Franks.

Tenet left the C-I-A in July after seven years as director. HeÔŅĹs been criticized for intelligence lapses leading to Nine-Eleven, but provided the president with evidence to back his case for ousting Saddam Hussein.

Bremer oversaw creation of the interim Iraqi governmentÔŅĹand disbanding of the Iraqi army. Just yesterday Iraqi President Ghazi al-Yawer called the army move a mistake.

Franks was the four-star Army general who commanded the U-S invasion force. After retiring, he endorsed Bush for re-election and campaigned on the presidentÔŅĹs behalf.
