Bush, national security team to meet with Iraq Study Group
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley and other top officials will hold separate meetings Monday with members of the Iraq Study Group, a panel created to assess the situation in Iraq and offer suggestions and advice, White House press secretary Tony Snow said.

In a briefing Friday, Snow said Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, outgoing Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte and CIA Director Gen. Mike Hayden will also hold discussions with the group.

U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Zal Khalilzad, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Peter Pace and other military officials will also participate, Snow said.

"The president is looking forward to hearing their views and discussing Iraq," the press secretary said.

The Iraq Study Group was created by a group of bipartisan lawmakers in March to "make a forward-looking, independent assessment of the current and prospective situation on the ground in Iraq and how that affects the surrounding region as well as U.S. interests," according to the group's Web site.
