by on February 14th, 2005


“The majority of this request will ensure that our troops continue to get what they need to protect themselves and complete their mission,'” Bush said in a statement released before the White House officially sent the supplemental budget request to Capitol Hill.

“It also provides for the continued pursuit of al-Qaeda and other terrorist elements in Afghanistan and elsewhere,” the president said. “I urge the Congress to move quickly so our troops and diplomats have the tools they need to succeed.”
