WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush was leaning on Thursday toward backing Europe in offering incentives to Iran to persuade it to give up nuclear ambitions, U.S. officials said, in a significant shift in strategy toward an arch enemy.

Bush was to discuss Iran at an afternoon meeting with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who met on Tuesday in London with foreign ministers of the three nations handling European negotiations with Iran -- Britain, France and Germany.

White House spokesman Scott McClellan said Bush had not made a final decision. He declined to discuss any details.

"We're continuing to look at how we can best support the European efforts, and make sure that those efforts are successful, to get Iran to abandon its nuclear ambitions," he said.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In a rare public mention of the mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks, President Bush said on Thursday stopping Osama bin Laden from a new attack on U.S. soil was "the greatest challenge of our day."

Bush confirmed U.S. reports that bin Laden had asked his chief ally in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, to plan attacks in the United States -- a warning that al Qaeda was still a threat to Americans at home.

"Recently, we learned that Osama bin Laden has urged the terrorist Zarqawi to form a group to conduct attacks outside Iraq, including here in the United States," Bush said at a public swearing-in ceremony for Michael Chertoff, the new head of the Department of Homeland Security.

"Bin Laden's message is a telling reminder that al Qaeda still hopes to attack us on our own soil," Bush said. "Stopping him is the greatest challenge of our day."
