Bush Says 9-11 Drives US Foreign Policy

VIENNA, Austria President Bush says Europeans who blast U-S foreign policy should put themselves in America's shoes.
He took questions in Austria today about the unpopular Iraq war, confrontation with Iran, North Korea and the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba.
A reporter asked about a poll from the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press that found Europeans see the U-S involvement in Iraq as more of a danger than Iran's nuclear program. Bush dismissed that idea as "absurd," saying the U-S is an open democracy and a threat to no one.
Bush says Nine-Eleven changed America. He says European critics of the U-S might see the attacks as a "moment," but that he feels the attacks required a fundamental change in U-S foreign policy.
