On Tuesday evening, President Bush officially vetoed war-spending legislation calling for the start of a withdrawal of troops from Iraq.

President George W. Bush arrived in Alabama on Saturday to survey the damage done by a deadly tornado that hit the region two days ago. Speaking with displaced residents, Mr. Bush tried to counter the claim that the White House was late in reacting to the disaster. Said Mr Bush:
“I hope it helps for the citizens here to hear that we declared your county a white disaster area, which will provide much quicker relief efforts.”
