London bombings give new urgency to Bush focus on fighting terrorism
President Bush sees last week's bombings in London as fresh proof of the need to aggressively fight terrorism. Bush today delivers a progress report on the war on terror in a speech at the FBI training academy in northern Virginia.
Officials say the address was planned before last week's London attacks. Bush focused on the issue in his radio address over the weekend, nothing the "free world did not seek this conflict, yet we will win it."
A White House spokesman says Bush will lay out both his short and long-term strategies in the fight against terror -- from fighting terrorists abroad to bringing prosperity and freedom to parts of the world that produce terrorists.
