The president refused to com-
ment on an issue looming over the
White House - the investigation
into the leak of a CIA agent's iden-
tity. With two top White House
officials a focus of the inquiry,
Bush was asked whether he would
fire anybody indicted in the probe.
"I'm not going to talk about the
investigation until it's complete,"
On Katrina, Bush said he would
work with Congress to "make real
cuts" in non-security spending to
help in rebuilding the. Gulf Coast.
"The private sector will be the
engine that drives the recovery of
the Gulf Coast," he said. But he
said the nation will continue to
spend whatever it takes to support
U.S. troops in Iraq.
Bush claimed progress on train-
ing Iraqi forces to take over the
security of their country despite
last week's statement from the top
U.S. commander there that only one
Iraqi battalion, down from three, is
ready to fight without U.S. help.
