President George W. Bush on Tuesday said it is naive and a mistake to think that the war with Iraq has worsened terrorism, disputing a national intelligence assessment by his own administration. He said he was declassifying part of the report. "Some people have guessed what's in the report and concluded that going in to Iraq was a mistake. I strongly disagree," Bush said. He asserted that portions of the classified that had been leaked were done so for political purposes, referring to the November 7 midterm congressional elections. Bush announced that he was ordering parts of the report declassified during a White House news conference with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
