Transcript: President Bush Meets with Troops in Fort Carson, Colorado
Terrorists need places to hide, to plot, and to train, so weâ€™re holding their allies, the allies of terror to account. (Applause.) Working with a fine coalition, our military went to Afghanistan, destroyed the training camps of al Qaeda, and put the Taliban out of business forever. (Applause.)
Transcript: Bushâ€™s State of the Union
â€œ …we are adding 3,200 Marines to our forces in Afghanistan, where they will fight the terrorists and train the Afghan Army and police. (Applause) Defeating the Taliban and al-Qaida is critical to our security, and I thank the Congress for supporting Americaâ€™s vital mission in Afghanistan. (Applause)
The only consistent thing here is the continuing applause.
