66. Bush is on a mission from God.
Bush Says Secretary Powell Will Link Iraq And Al Qaeda

The president also demonstrated a willingness to frame the U.S. position within a spiritual context. "The liberty we prize is not America's gift to the world, it is God's gift to humanity," he stated.

"We Americans have faith in ourselves but not in ourselves alone. We do not claim to know all the ways of Providence, yet we can trust in them, placing our confidence in the loving God behind all of life, and all of history," he said.

Governor Gary Locke of Washington state delivered the Democratic Party's response to Bush's speech shortly after the president had concluded his remarks.

With regard to U.S. policy toward Iraq, Locke said Democrats support the president but believe he should secure the support of allies abroad before launching any attack.
