Bush says more political improvements needed in Iraq

President George W. Bush said Thursday more work remains to be done in Iraq, especially in terms of political improvements in the country. "Are we satisfied with progress in Baghdad? No, but to say nothing is happening is not the case," Bush said. And while the government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has come under considerable criticism from various quarters, "There is a functioning government," Bush said at a news conference Thursday.
