Snow: Bush not ready to release Iraq policy 'before its ready'
Washington (CNN) -- Saying "it's not ready yet," White House Press Secretary Tony Snow told reporters Tuesday President Bush has delayed announcing a new Iraq strategy because of the amount of recommendations and information he must take into account.

"I think what happens is, people have come back with answers, and he said, 'I want more,'" Snow said the White House daily briefing. "And he's not going to move before its ready."

The president had originally hoped to unveil his vision of Iraq's future before Christmas but informed his aides Tuesday that he needed more time.
