Bush Compares War on Terror with War for Independence

George W. Bush visited Mount Vernon today, the home of Revolutionary War hero and American President George Washington. The current President laid a wreath at the tomb of the first President to honor the man whose birthday is being celebrated today.

Joined by an actor dressed as General Washington and a military honor guard sporting uniforms from the Revolutionary War, President Bush gave a wonderful speech honoring his predecessor and noting that both the current war and the War for Independence had the same ultimate goals: to defend liberty and “advance the cause of freedom.”
