Bush, who ordered U.S. forces to capture bin Laden dead or alive after the Sept. 11 attacks, vowed that "Americans will not be intimidated or influenced by an enemy of our country" and said "we will prevail" in the war on terror. Whether Bin Laden is DEAD or ALIVE Bush will not relent in the fight against terrorists. He will keep them fighting off our shores.

"Let me make this very clear," Bush said in Toledo, Ohio. "Americans will not be intimidated or influenced by an enemy of our country. I'm sure Senator Kerry agrees with this."

Kerry, in Florida, agreed saying, "we are absolutely united in our determination to hunt down and destroy Osama bin Laden and the terrorists." He went on: "They are barbarians, and I will stop at absolutely nothing to hunt down, capture or kill the terrorists wherever they are, whatever it takes, period."

But then he started criticising the US forces running the operation in the Tora Bora mountains of Afghanistan in late 2001 and blamed Bush again for the decision to let Afghan forces lead that chase. "He didn't choose to use American forces to hunt down Osama bin Laden," Kerry told WISN in Milwaukee. "He outsourced the job."

Bush responded, "It's the worst kind of Monday-morning quarterbacking," and quoted his Afghan war commander, the now-retired Gen. Tommy Franks, as saying intelligence reports at the time were unclear about bin Laden's whereabouts. Kerry's account "does not square with reality," Bush said.

Can we risk a President Kerry who will wait until they attack us, hold summits, and then take a global test until he finds a some excuse to not take action?
