Meanwhile, President Bush hopes to prevent future attacks from terrorist groups by stopping their cash flow.
Today's response is an executive order that will freeze the assets of terrorist organizations.
He says it's the "financial equivalent of law enforcement's most- wanted list."
By way of a satellite T-V channel, prime suspect Osama bin Laden is calling on Muslims in Pakistan to fight against what he calls "the American crusade forces."
Bin Laden is believed to be hiding in Afghanistan, and often communicates with the outside world through the satellite channel. Aleen Sirgany is in Washington with the latest.
