Thats what Im interested in. Im interested in how to get the best intelligence to my desk so I can be a good decision maker on behalf of the people of this country. And intelligence is a vital part of winning this war against these terrorists.
BUSH: Weve got to know who they are, what theyre thinking, where they are. And so, thats how were approaching this issue.
Now, listen, Ive called for a national intelligence director, because I think its an important part of coordinating activities to make sure the analysis of information is as good as it can possibly be.
I am not, for anything, standing in between me and my line operators like the secretary of defense. In other words, once intelligence is in place and once we come up with a decision as to how to act, I want to make sure the person responsible for the actions has a direct report to me.
And so, were looking at all options, including the budget option -- all aimed at making sure that me and future presidents have got the best information possible.
Senator Roberts is a good, thoughtful guy who came up with an idea and well look at it. Well take a look at it and determine whether or not it works or not.
But there is going to be a lot of other ideas too as this debate goes forward.
Listen, thank you all.
