George W. Bush
What did Bush say in his speech to the country after the terrorist attacks?
Bush gave an inspired speech to the American public following the attack. He said things such as:
Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.
The search is underway for those who are behind these evil acts. I’ve directed the full resources for our intelligence and law enforcement communities to find those responsible and bring them to justice. We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them.
None of us will ever forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world.
