President Bush is trying to block off terrorist suspect Osama bin Laden's money flow.
His national security adviser says the President will sign an executive order, freezing U-S assets of terrorist groups and their operatives around the world.
Meanwhile, the Bush administration is also promising to show allies evidence of bin Laden's role in the September eleventh attacks.
The administration is not saying whether it plans to show that SAME evidence to the public.

The Foreign Ministry officials of the Northern Alliance also say they're very much afraid that a foreign military intervention might harm a lot of innocent Afghan civilians. Nonetheless they are keen to have Western and particularly American support for any big military offensive against the Taliban.
They say that in the south according to Taliban sources a hundred thousand men are being trained and armed and the city of Kabul is being fortified with bunkers. And I know that here in the north where we are we've seen men and supplies on the move. So the whole country is clearly bracing itself for some kind of major military offensive.

SOT/GLEN SEKINS, FEMA

"It's a mess out there, it's not what you're used to seeing."
As much as 90 tons of debris has already been carted off... And while the work of cleaning up 16 acres of disaster zone continues, so does the healing process.

New Yorks Yankee Stadium was the site of a mass prayer service, where famous faces and the public gathered to remember the victims and find strength to fight on.

"We need courage to deal with our pain..."
While the fight for spiritual healing moves forward, the battle lines are being drawn in Washington. President Bush returned from Camp David with a promise to release evidence that Osama bin Laden is behind the attacks while his administration soundly rejects Taliban claims that the terrorist is nowhere to be found.

SOT: Donald Rumsfeld/Defense Secretary

Super: CBS/FACE THE NATION) They know where he is.
The Talibans hard line is prompting more than tough talk from the White House. As the military build up reaches its peak, one thing remains clear: the time for diplomacy is running out. )

The Dow Jones TRANSPIRATION Index obviously includes the airlines.
Since so many travelers are so afraid to fly, that transpiration index took a hit, and so did Roanoke. US Airways recently responded to the low number of customers by announcing it will cancel jet service into Roanoke, while leaving the smaller, commuter planes. The chairman of the airport commission says low demand makes for a meager bottom line.
