Bush Speech outlines 5 step Plan for Iraq

Reactions vary to President Bush's speech about his plan to help Iraq reach a secure, democratic future amidst a flurry of bad news, attacks on coalition forces, abuse of Iraqi detainees and rising criticism at home and abroad.

President Bush said there may be "difficult days ahead" in Iraq that "sometimes appear chaotic," but he promises "no power of the enemy will stop Iraq's progress."

In his speech at the U.S. Army War College Monday night, Bush outlined five steps to restore Iraqi sovereignty and get the country back on its feet:

1. Handing over authority to a sovereign Iraqi government.

2. Establishing security.

3. Continuing to rebuild Iraq's infrastructure.

4. Encouraging more international support.

5. Moving toward a national election in Iraq that "will bring forward new leaders empowered by the Iraqi people."
