Bush on Iraq: 'We're doing the right thing'
President defends NSA domestic surveillance

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (CNN) -- President Bush on Wednesday defended the National Security Agency's controversial warrantless eavesdropping program and the nearly three-year mission to plant democracy in Iraq -- his second speech in as many days revolving around national security.

...As for the NSA program, Bush said he wanted to find out why al Qaeda and affiliates "are making phone calls into the United States and vice versa."

"I did so because the enemy still wants to hurt us," he said. "And it seems like to me if somebody is talking to al Qaeda, we want to know why."

Bush said he understands the "concerns about government eavesdropping" and shares those concerns. At the same time, he said he is trying to strike a balance between civil liberties and security, saying "on a limited basis, and I mean limited basis, try to find out the intention of the enemy."

Bush said "before I went forward I wanted to make sure I had all the legal authority necessary to make this decision as your president."

The president said there will be hearings about the program but said "that's good for democracy" -- as long as the hearings don't communicate "to the enemy what we're doing."
