Bush Cites Progress In Iraq As Baghdad Mayor Is Ousted.
In Crawford, Bush said that the United States was making progress in Iraq. Meanwhile, in Iraq, the mayor of Baghdad has been ousted after 120 Shiite gunmen stormed his office and installed a new mayor. Elsewhere in Baghdad, another suicide attack has killed six and wounded fourteen. And in the northern Iraqi city of Beiji four US soldiers were killed. Despite all this “progress”, Bush said it was too soon to say when the number of American troops could be scaled back.
