Bush to visit New York, sees 'quiet anger' in America
AP Special CorrespondentWASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush, declaring "I weep and mourn with America," announced Thursday he will visit terrorist-stricken New York on Friday. Officials said the death toll from coordinated attacks earlier in the week would reach into the thousands.
"There is a quiet anger in America," Bush said in a telephone conference call with New York Gov. George Pataki and Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.
"My resolve is steady and strong about winning this war that has been declared on America," the president added. "It's a new kind of war. ... This government will adjust and this government will call other governments to join us."
Bush spoke as Congress hastened to vote $20 billion as a first installment on recovery and anti-terrorism efforts. There was also discussion about passage of legislation authorizing a military response to the attacks in New York and Washington, although administration officials made clear they believed the president already had the authority he needed.
