2. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W Bush, US President "First of all, I don't have anthrax, and the... it's hard for Americans to imagine how evil people are who are doing this. We are having to adjust our thinking. We are a kind nation, a compassionate nation, a nation of strong values and we value life and we are learning people in this world want to terrorize our country by trying to take life. They won't succeed. This country is too strong to allow terrorists to affect the lives of our citizens. I understand people are concerned and they should be but they need to know our government is doing everything we possibly can to protect the lives of our citizens, everything."

4. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W Bush, US President "There is no question that anybody who would mail anthrax with the intent to harm American citizens is a terrorist and there is no question that al-Qaida is a terrorist organization so I wouldn't put it past me that they are... I wouldn't surprise me that they are involved with it, but I have no direct evidence. But I do know that this country is strong enough to endure the evil ones and we are making great progress on the ground in Afghanistan and we'll bring the al-Qaida to justice and we are doing everything we can to find out who mailed these letters."

6. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W Bush, US President "Well I told Shimon Peres that first of all our country, the people of our country are saddened by the fact that the Cabinet minister was assassinated, it's just unacceptable behaviour. I also told him that we continue to call upon Chairman Arafat to do everything he can to bring the killer to justice. It's very important that he arrests the person who did this or those who did this act and continue to arrest those who disrupt and harm Israeli citizens. He must, he must show the resolve necessary to bring peace to the region, and finally I did express our concern about troops in Palestinian territory and I would hope that the Israelis move their troops as quickly as possible."
U-S President George W Bush has assured the American public that his government is doing everything it can to capture those who have mailed letters contaminated with anthrax.
At a White House news briefing on Tuesday, Bush said that those who have sent the letters are terrorists.
He said he wouldn't be surprised if what he called "the al-Qaida terrorist organisation" was behind the anthrax scare, although he admitted there was no evidence linking the two.
Bush also talked about the situation in the Middle East, saying the killers of the Israeli Tourism Minister must be brought to justice, while also calling on the Israelis to pull troops out of the Palestinian territories.
