President Bush says he will be considering recommendations from a variety of sources before making any announcement of changes of policy on Iraq.
President Bush made the comment on Monday at the State Department after talks involving Vice President Dick Cheney, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other officials.
The talks follow the release of a bipartisan Iraq Study Group's 79 recommendations on Iraq, which include withdrawing most U.S. combat troops by early 2008.
Mr. Bush says he is continuing consultations with the military and other officials before making any decision on a change in policy.
Later today, Mr. Bush meets at the White House with non-governmental experts including three retired generals, Wayne Downing, Jack Keane and Barry McCaffrey.
Mr. Bush has said he will take the recommendations of the Iraq Study Group seriously. Some opposition Democrats are pushing Mr. Bush to adopt many of the panel's suggestions.
