Bush admits Saddam Hussein
not responsible for 9/11 attacks,
but strongly defends War in Iraq
WASHINGTON (AP) - Five years after the worst
attack on U.S. soil, President Bush said yesterday
night the war against terrorism is "the calling of our
generation" and urged Americans to put aside differ-
ences and fight to victory.
"America did not ask for this war, and every Amer-
ican wishes it were over," Bush said in a prime-time
address from the Oval Office. "The war is not over -
and it will not be over until either we or the extremists
Bush also staunchly defended the war in Iraq
though he acknowledged that Saddam Hussein was
not responsible for the 9/11 attacks that killed nearly
His address came at the end of a day in which he
visited New York, Pennsylvania and the Pentagon to
honor victims of the attacks that rocked his presi-
dency and thrust the United States into a costly and
unfinished war against terror.
"We are now in the early hours of this struggle
between tyranny and freedom," the president said.
As for Iraq, he said Saddam's regime, while lack-
ing weapons of mass destruction, was a threat that
posed "a risk the world could not afford to take." At
least 2,670 U.S. servicemen and women have died in
Iraq, which Bush calls the central front in the war on
"Whatever mistakes have been made in Iraq, the
worst mistake would be to think that if we pulled
out, the terrorists would leave us alone," the president
said. "They will not leave us alone. They will follow
The nation is split over the war-in Iraq and Bush's
'handling of it, and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.),
accused Bush of playing politics.
NEWS IN BRIEF
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip
Fatah, Hamas make deal to share power
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas struck a deal yesterday to share power with
the militant Islamic Hamas, an accord that could restore international aid and could
lead to contacts with Israel.
The breakthrough compromise falls short of international demandsthat Hamasfully
renounce violence, but Israeli officials still voiced cautious support for the accord.
Hamas, which is committed to Israel's destruction, swept to victory in January leg-
islative elections, defeating Fatah, and formed a government by itself. The West and
Israel reacted by cutting off hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, accusing Hamas of
being a terrorist group.
Initially, Palestinians held the West and Israel to blame for their misfortune, but
in recent weeks, they have directed that criticism at the government. Tens of thou-
sands of civil servants launched a strike this month to protest the government's
failure to pay them. A two-month Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip - begun after
Hamas-linked militants infiltrated Israel and captured a soldier - has added to
the Palestinians' misery.
Saddam accuses opponents of racial hatred
A defiant Saddam Hussein accused Kurdish witnesses at his genocide trial yester-
day of trying to divide Iraqis by alleging chemical attacks and mass arrests during a
crackdown that the prosecution says killed up to 180,000 people.
Three Kurdish witnesses told of brutal repression during Operation Anfal,
the 1987-88 campaign against a Kurdish revolt in the final stages of Iraq's war
with Iran. Saddam accused the Kurds of helping Iran in the war.
One of the witnesses, a Kurdish-American, said she saw people sickened
and dying during a chemical attack and demanded compensation from foreign
companies that supplied Saddam with chemicals, supposedly for agriculture.
"All the witnesses said in the courtroom that they were oppressed because
they were Kurds," Saddam shouted after hearing the testimony. "They're try-
ing to create strife between the people of Iraq. They're trying to create division
between Kurds and Arabs and this is what I want the people of Iraq to know.
Suicide bomber kills 6 at state funeral
In a further assault on the embattled Afghan government, a suicide bomber killed
six people yesterday at the funeral of a provincial governor who was assassinatedby the
Taliban. Four senior Cabinet ministers escaped injury.
The attack occurred near a tent where more than 1,000 people had congregated in
the Tani district of Khost province in eastern Afghanistan. The bombing caused car-
nage and chaos, and police fired in the air to control panicked mourners who feared
there might be a second blast.
The funeral was for Gov. Abdul Hakim Taniwal, who was killed Sunday with two
other people in a suicide attack outside his office in Gardez, the capital of Paktia prov-
ince. Taniwal was the most senior official slain in a series of Taliban assaults.
New al-Qaida video threatens Gulf and Israel
Al-Qaida's No. 2 condemned U.N. peacekeepers in Lebanon as enemies of
Islam and warned the terror group will strike the Persian Gulf and Israel, suggest-
ing new fronts in its war against the West in a video yesterday marking the fifth
anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
The video of Ayman al-Zawahri was one of three al-Qaida released for the anniver-
sary, showing increasingly sophisticated techniques as the group tries to demonstrate
that it remains a powerful, confident force five years into the U.S. war on terror.
