Bush: Extremists driven by perverted vision of Islam

Posted: Updated:

WHITE  HOUSE -  In a speech to the nation on the fifth anniversary of Nine-Eleven, President George W. Bush said the war against terrorism is "the calling of our generation" and urged Americans to put aside differences and fight to victory.  

Bush said Islamic extremists are driven by a perverted vision of Islam that hates freedom, rejects tolerance, and despises all dissent.   He said that while America did not ask for the war and everyone wishes it was over, the country faces "an enemy determined to bring death and suffering into our homes."      

During the speech, Bush said enemies of freedom have not been idle the past five years, even if the United States hasn't been attacked again. He also says America cherishes the memory of those killed on Nine-Eleven and the country won't back down from the work they have begun.
