Sept. 24 As U.S. forces move into position near Afghanistan, the Bush administration announced it has dealt its first blow against Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network in the form of financial pressure.  "At 12:01 this morning a major thrust of our war on terrorism began with a stroke of a pen," President Bush said today from the White House Rose Garden. "We launched a strike on the global terrorist network." Bush signed an executive order naming 27 specific terrorists and terrorist groups and granting the United States broad authority to seize all assets of those suspected in playing a role in the attacks. The order also promises to freeze U.S. assets of any government that does not cooperate in the cause to lock up all assets Mon Sep 24
