September 1, 2004 Bush backtracks, says terror war can be won By Mike Allen, The Washington Post NASHVILLE, Tenn. — President Bush rushed yesterday to reverse his assertion that the war on terrorism cannot be won, as his campaign sought to limit the damage from a statement that Democrats had used to paint the commander in chief as defeatist. "Make no mistake about it: We are winning and we will win," Bush told the annual convention of the American Legion as he continued his journey toward the Republican National Convention for his acceptance speech tomorrow night. "We will win by staying on the offensive," he said. "We will win by spreading liberty. We believe that liberty can transform nations from tyranny into peaceful nations." In tone and substance, the remarks differed sharply from the more contemplative words he had offered on NBC's "Today" show Monday. Asked about "this war on terror" during that interview, Bush said: "I don't think you can win it. But I think you can create conditions so that those who use terror as a tool are less acceptable in parts of the world. Let's put it that way."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
