President Bush says the hateful ideologies of terrorism will be defeated by a world united in what he called "the unstoppable power of freedom and democracy."
Speaking in Virginia Monday, Mr. Bush said last week's bombings of London's transit system were an attack on the civilized world. He said terrorism, just like fascism and communism, will be defeated by nations coming together to advance the cause of freedom.
In his speech, the president also called for renewal of the Patriot Act, a controversial law passed by Congress in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks.
Congress has begun working on renewing some of the law's provisions amid fresh criticism from members of both parties that the law undermines basic freedoms and curtails civil rights.
