President George W. Bush giving updates on the War on Terror: “Nearly every day, we’re launching swift precision raids against the enemies of peace. Helped by intelligence from the Iraqis, we’re rounding up the enemy and taking their weapons. We’re working our way through the famous deck of cards. We’ve already captured or killed 43 of the 55 most wanted former Iraqi leaders. The other 12 have a lot to worry about. Anyone who seeks to harm our soldiers can know that our soldiers are hunting for them. Our military is serving with great courage. Some of the best have fallen. We mourn every loss. We honor every name. We grieve with every family. And we’ll always be grateful that liberty has found such brave defenders.”
