WASHINGTON (AP) _ President Bush will announce a major restructuring of homeland security programs as Congress investigates intelligence lapses prior to the Sept. 11 attacks, The Associated Press has learned.

The package, to be unveiled by Bush Thursday night, includes the creation of a new agency to act as a clearinghouse for terrorism intelligence, according to several White House officials who called the effort one of the biggest restructuring efforts since World War II.

The White House will ask television networks to broadcast the speech.
