When terrorists struck America they wanted to create an atmosphere of fear - and they have failed. America will not surrender our freedom to travel or our way of life.
A strong, capable and modern military is the foundation of the peace we enjoy today and hope to extend for future generations. The military of the present must be better supported and respected. The right choices must be made to renew the bond of trust between the President and the military, protect America with an effective national missile defense, and create a military capable of meeting the challenges of the21st Century.
