President George W. Bush met with wounded soldiers and military commanders Saturday before returning to the White House and to a renewed fight with the Democratic-run Congress over the future of the US involvement in Iraq. He plans a nationally televised address this coming week to "lay out a vision" for the American people about the US role. In his Saturday radio address, Bush also set the stage for Monday's congressional testimony by Gen. David Petraeus, the chief US commander in Iraq. Bush flew to Honolulu from Sydney, Australia. As Air Force One refueled, he met with the soldiers and was briefed by military commanders. He was expected back in Washington early Sunday. In the radio talk, recorded before the flight, Bush recounted his Labor Day trip to Iraq's Anbar Province to visit US troops and "see with my own eyes the remarkable changes they are making possible."
