WASHINGTON -- President Bush's national security adviser, Brent Scowcroft, made an unannounced trip to the Middle East this week to consult with American allies on the postwar situation in Iraq, an administration official said yesterday.

"At the request of the president, General Scowcroft visited the Middle East this week," said Roman Popadiuk, a White House spokesman. "I have no further details."

Asked about the trip, an administration official who insisted on anonymity said, "Scowcroft was sent to consult on the Middle East situation, particularly the postwar situation in Iraq."
