US President George W. Bush said he is open to the possibility of slowing or stopping plans to bring more US troops home from Iraq, defying domestic demands to speed the withdrawals. Updated on war developments, Bush said the US presence in Iraq will outlast his presidency. Bush, who had a breakfast of bacon and pancakes on Sunday with troops from the US Navy's 5th Fleet before flying to the United Arab Emirates, said any decision about troops' levels "needs to be based upon success." He said there was no discussion about specific numbers when he was briefed by Gen. David Petraeus, the top US commander in Iraq, and Ryan Crocker, the US ambassador to Baghdad.
