(CNN) – A very different take on Iraq and the war on terrorism will be center stage Tuesday in Charleston, South Carolina.
President Bush arrives at Charleston Air Force Base about 14 hours after Democratic candidates wrapped up the CNN/YouTube debate.
White House correspondent Suzanne Malveaux reports President Bush will discuss newly declassifed information a White House official says will show connections between al Qaeda in Iraq and al Qaeda. The official said, "He'll talk about that even though al Qaeda in Iraq is majority Iraqi, its leadership, operational control and majority of suicide bombers are foreign. He'll also talk about why al Qaeda in Iraq is such a serious threat."
The official said the President will "then talk about the differing levels of collaboration al Qaeda groups or affiliates have with al Qaeda, around the world, and why we must fight them all over the world, so that we do not have to fight them here at home."
