Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
This week, the United Nations is discussing ways to fight international terrorism.
When he addressed the organization this morning, Mayor Giuliani caled on the U-N to hold any country accountable who supports terrorism.
Giuliani says there's no excuse for mass murder, just as there's no excuse for genocide.
At Ground Zero in New York-- more than 100 members of Congress are touring the rubble from the World Trade Center.


They're trying to get an idea of the amount of devastation there, in order to decide how much money is needed to help New York recover from the attack.
Gretchen Carlson is standing by in New York City with the latest.

(((TRACK) LOCATOR: NEW YORK New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani led off the U-Ns week-long debate on international terrorism. He asked members to remember the more than 5000 people from more than 80 different countries lost in the World Trade Center attack.

(SOT - ) Rudy Giuliani - Mayor, New York

Indeed this vicious attack places in jeopardy the whole purpose of the United Nations.

(TRACK)


Taking a page out of President Bushs book Giuliani called on U-N members to take sides in this new war on terrorism asking the 189 member nations to choose freedom and democracy or the enemy.

(SOT - ) Rudy Giuliani

Look at the destruction at the scene and then I ask you to look inside your hearts and decide whether you are with civilization or youre with terrorism.

(TRACK) ( to be updated when today/Congressional footage available)


The Mayors speech comes after another night of visiting the attack site. Sunday night, Giuliani accompanied House Speaker Dennis Hastert to where the World Trade Center once stood. Later today, 100 other congressional members will see the site first-hand as well as the tedious search for bodies continues.

Those 100 laps of racing took nearly three hours to complete. They also included a Johnny Rumley, Butch Hamlet crash that kept the Taco Bell car out of the race's main event. The red flag also got into the act as the racing was halted for 30 minutes. Norfolk's Phil Warren managed to survive his heat race and transfer into the 200 lap main event. In fact Warren ended up pulling off the impossible - winning the Taco Bell 300 despite starting out of the top 20. He becomes the race's first repeat winner.
