 Message to the Congress Transmitting Proposed Legislation for the 
Implementation of the International Convention for the Suppression of 
Terrorist Bombings and the International Convention for the Suppression 
of the Financing of Terrorism


 October 25, 2001

 To the Congress of the United States:

     Enclosed for the consideration of the Congress is a legislative 
proposal to implement the International Convention for the Suppression 
of Terrorist Bombings and the International Convention for the 
Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism. Also enclosed is a detailed 
explanation of the bill's provisions.
     Title I of the bill is entitled the ``Terrorist Bombings Convention 
Implementation Act of 2001.'' It would implement the International 
Convention for the Suppression of Terrorist Bombings, which was signed 
by the United States on January 12, 1998, and which was transmitted to 
the Senate for its advice and consent to ratification on September 8, 
1999. In essence, the Convention imposes binding legal obligations upon 
State Parties either to submit for prosecution or to extradite any 
person within their jurisdiction who unlawfully and intentionally 
delivers, places, discharges, or detonates an explosive or other lethal 
device in, into, or against a place of public use, a State or government 
facility, a public transportation system, or an infrastructure facility. 
A State Party is subject to these obligations without regard to the 
place where the alleged act covered by the Convention took place. 
Twenty-eight States are currently party to the Convention, which entered 
into force internationally on May 23, 2001.
     Title II of the bill is entitled the ``Suppression of the Financing 
of Terrorism Convention Implementation Act of 2001.'' It would implement 
the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of 
Terrorism, which was signed by the United States on January 10, 2000, 
and which was transmitted to the Senate for its advice and consent to 
ratification on October 12, 2000. The Convention imposes binding legal 
obligations upon State Parties either to submit for prosecution or to 
extradite any person within their jurisdiction who unlawfully and 
wilfully provides or collects funds with the intention that they should 
be used to carry out various terrorist activities. A State Party is 
subject to these obligations without regard to the place where the 
alleged act covered by the Convention took place. The Convention is not 
yet in force internationally, but will enter into force on the thirtieth 
day following the date of the deposit of the twenty-second instrument of 
ratification, acceptance, approval, or accession with the Secretary 
General of the United Nations.
     I urge the prompt and favorable consideration of this proposal.
                                                George W. Bush
 The White House,
 October 25, 2001.

Marine Corps, he was a tireless advocate of the men and women of the 
United States military who continued to work to protect the interests of 
America's veterans long after his service in

to his creed: duty, honor, country.

The President's Radio Address

October 27, 2001

    Good morning. I'm pleased to report that our Nation continues to 
take important steps in the war against terrorism. Next week, the House 
of Representatives will be voting on an airline security bill that 
Congressman Don Young has introduced.
    It was modeled after proposals I made last month. Under the Young 
bill, the Federal Government will assume complete control of airport 
security and screening. It also greatly expands the Federal air marshal 
program and provides substantial new funding for secure cockpits and 
other security measures aboard airplanes.
    There's a critical difference between the Young bill and the bill 
the Senate passed a few weeks ago. My approach gives the Government the 
flexibility it needs to assemble a skilled and disciplined screening 
workforce.
    The Senate bill mandates that all passenger and baggage screeners be 
Federal workers in all circumstances. While that bill is well-intended, 
the best approach will be one that provides flexibility. The Young bill 
allows the use of private contractors operating under tough Federal 
standards on background checks with Federal law enforcement at every 
gate to promote better screening services, and ensure that security 
managers can move aggressively to discipline or fire employees who fail 
to live up to the rigorous new standards.
    The Young bill is the quickest, most effective way to increase 
aviation security. And time is of the essence. I urge Congress to move 
quickly on this vital legislation, as it did this week in passing new 
legislation to fight terrorism.
    The bill I signed yesterday gives intelligence and law enforcement 
officials additional tools they need to hunt and capture and punish 
terrorists. Our enemies operate by highly sophisticated methods and 
technologies, using the latest means of communication and the new weapon 
of bioterrorism.
    When earlier laws were written, some of these methods did not even 
exist. The new law recognizes the realities and dangers posed by the 
modern terrorist. It will help us to prosecute terrorist organizations--
and also to detect them before they strike.
    Since 11th of September, the men and women of our intelligence and 
law enforcement agencies have been relentless in their work. In return 
for their exceptional service, these public servants deserve our full 
support, and every means of help that we can provide. Intelligence 
operations and criminal investigations have often had to operate on 
separate tracks. The new law will make it easier for all agencies to 
share vital information about terrorist activity.
    Surveillance of communications is another essential method of law 
enforcement. But for a long time, we have been working under laws 
written in the era of rotary telephones. Under the new law, officials
