Bush says he looks forward to reading Iraq report
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Calling his meeting with the Iraq Study Group "a good discussion," President Bush said Monday he looks forward to reading the group's report that is expected to send shockwaves across Washington when it is released some time in December.

"I was pleased to meet with them," the President told reporters in the Oval Office with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert at his side. "I was impressed by the quality of the - of their membership. I was impressed by the questions they asked. They want us to succeed in Iraq, just like I want to succeed and so we had a really good discussion. I'm not sure what the report is going to say, I'm looking forward to seeing it."

The president's comments came after he and Olmert discussed conditions in the Middle East. Bush said the two are committed to prohibiting Iran from becoming a nuclear power.

"If Iran has a nuclear weapon it will be incredibly destabilizing and obviously threatening to our strong ally," Bush said. "And so, my attitude is, let's work in concert to convince the government that it's not just the Israeli voices speaking, or the United States voices speaking, but there's a lot of other voices saying the exact same thing, and present them with a choice"
