From the Associated Press:
"President Bush's national security adviser, Stephen Hadley, says the president believes the US must confront threats "before they fully materialize." The White House has issued an updated national security report, reaffirming Bush's policy to strike first against militants and enemy nations.
"Hadley says the strategy states that the nation's long-standing principles of self-defense don't rule out using force before attacks occur."Okay, I get it. Like the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
