WHITE HOUSE (AP) -- President Bush says the violence in Iraq over the past month has been a "serious concern" to him, and to the American people.

Bush, at the start of a White House news conference, spoke of the 93 U-S military personnel killed in Iraq this month. He said many more Iraqi security personnel died during the same time, and that Iraqi civilians have seen "unspeakable violence."'

Bush said, "As the enemy shifts tactics, we are shifting our tactics as well." He said, "Our goals are unchanging," but that "we are flexible in our methods" to achieve those goals.

Bush spoke of setbacks in trying to secure Baghdad. He said, "Some Iraqi security forces have performed below expectations." But he said U-S troops are "performing superbly" in a "very difficult" situation.
