President George W. Bush said Friday that it's not yet clear when Iraqi forces will be able to take control of their country's security, a key step in bringing US troops home. Making that determination depends on an assessment of the new government in Baghdad, which just on Thursday installed a new defense minister and other top national security posts, Bush said. "I think we'll get a realistic appraisal about the capacity for standing up Iraqi troops as this new government begins to function," the president said, appearing here with Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, a staunch US ally in Iraq.
