WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Bemoaning an election-year leak, President George W. Bush on Tuesday said he would declassify a secret terrorism document that included a judgment the Iraq war had spread Islamic extremism.

At a news conference with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Bush said political opponents had disclosed only select parts of the National Intelligence Estimate, a U.S. global report on terrorism, and he decided to make the document public so "you read it for yourself."

"Somebody has taken it upon themselves to leak classified information for political purposes," Bush said.

So Bush decides to declassify it for political purposes.

Which I guess proves that it really wasn't classified for National Security reasons in the first place.
