National: Bush Condemns Terrorist Attacks In London; "We will not yield to terrorists," president says - President Bush condemned the terrorist attacks in London July 7 saying, "We will not yield to these people, will not yield to the terrorists."

"We will find them, we will bring them to justice, and at the same time, we will spread an ideology of hope and compassion that will overwhelm their ideology of hate," Bush said in a prepared statement from Auchterarder, Scotland, where he is attending the annual Group of Eight Summit. - More...

National: From Hitler to IRA, London has kept stiff upper lip By LANCE GAY - Terrorists couldn't have picked a more resilient city to attack than London.

From Catholic dissidents, militant suffragettes, the kaiser's zeppelins, Adolf Hitler and the IRA, the city has been repeatedly bombed through its 2,000-year history and has always bounced back.

This November, London is commemorating the 400th anniversary of one of its most notorious bomb plots: the efforts of Guy Fawkes and a group of Catholic dissidents backed by Spain to blow up Parliament and kill King James I. - More...

National: U.S. Increases Security Measures for Mass Transit Systems; No credible U.S. threat, but response is prudent, Chertoff says - The United States increased its terrorist threat level July 7 for mass-transit systems nationwide in direct response to terrorist attacks that rocked London earlier in the day.

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said U.S. government officials and analysts continue to monitor events that occurred in London when four bombs detonated at three subway stations and on a bus within an hour during the morning rush hour. Early news reports indicate that at least 33 people were killed and approximately 700 were injured in the four attacks across London.

Chertoff spoke with President Bush, who is in Scotland for the Group of Eight Summit, via a videoconference earlier in the day along with Vice President Cheney and other homeland security and national security officials. - More...

Columns - Commentary

Ann McFeatters: Democracies must unite to combat world terrorism - What happened in London must lead us to the realization that in the last few years we have witnessed the globalization of World War III.

After sporadic acts of terrorism, the war began in earnest with the heinous rush-hour attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, that killed 3,000 people. But many saw that as a war launched on the United States, not on the world at large. - More...

Dan Thomasson: Bush to neo-cons: Don't push me - It's nice to see a president willing to make it clear that he doesn't appreciate attacks on a friend even when they come from supposed allies. The friend happens to be Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, and those doing the criticizing are neo-conservatives who have already warned that Gonzales is an unacceptable candidate for the Supreme Court largely because he isn't correct on the issue of abortion.

He is too moderate, seems to be the concern. - More...

Jay Ambrose: Warming debate is hardly over - Arnold Schwarzenegger, California's actor turned governor, recently turned scientist, too, or so you might guess from the definitive, self-assured language he employed in an op-ed piece for Britain's Independent newspaper.

In it, he told us that human-induced, catastrophic global warming is a fact, no ifs, maybes or buts. - More...

Lee Drutman: Rich pervert tax code for themselves - For a sense of the strange macroeconomic priorities in vogue in America these days, one need look no further than the unfolding congressional budget process.

Though the final numbers are yet to be codified, the thrust is unmistakable. In May, the House and Senate Republican conferees agreed to a budget resolution that cuts funding for education, veterans' health care, environmental protection, housing and other domestic programs by $212 billion over five years, according to an analysis by the watchdog Center for Budget and Policy Priorities. - More...

Dale McFeatters: War on terror's newest battleground - If the heads of the eight democratic nations gathered in Scotland were inclined to believe progress was being made because the war on terror was lately quiescent, that complacency was shattered Thursday morning by a series of lethal blasts in London's public transportation network.

To Americans - and the Spanish, who experienced a similar attack a year ago March, and the Russians, weary of fatal hostage-takings - the scenes were horribly familiar: the stunned, dazed survivors stumbling through the smoke, the ambulances, the frantic rescuers. But this time there were important differences. - More...
